There's a glitch on the forum at the moment and photos won't upload ... the tech team are looking into it and NoraGW will let us know as soon as it's fixed.

Which plants would you relegate to the compost heap... for good?

So do you have no barrier ... hedge/fence/wall at your garden boundary?

Dove, do you leave the seeded flower head on and the birds feed from it? or do you remove it and collect the seeds for the birds?  Thanks.

See original post

 I leave it on and let the birds feed from it.  it's great fun watching when the fat wood pigeons try to perch on the sunflower to get the seeds ... if they break the stem, which sometimes happens, I then hang the sunflower head up for the bluetits etc.

I follow the RHS advice which is

"Containerised figs: In late March, cut out dead stems and weak branches before growth starts. Mid June: remove the shoot tips from the new growth, leaving four to five leaves." 

How long until I can harvest my first courgette?
