Birdfeeder in flowerbed?

Posted: 02/06/2014 at 09:38

The No-Mess feed mixes are good, birds tend to waste less of it and as it's been husked it doesn't germinate if spilled.

((hugs)) for Panda and anybody else that needs them 

My word you lot can't half natter!  Haven't you got anything better to do this morning?

I've been recording my garden amphibian sightings on here 

But now I've done it it won't let me back in   Oh well, at least I've recorded them.

Afraid it doesn't work for phones - yet. 

Incredible luck

That's why you've got the Orange tips - they don't think it's too much - they obviously think it's just right

Give them a good hosing down, try to wash it off and dilute it as much as possible, and cross your fingers very hard.

What sort of weedkiller was it?

I've just had a bacon and tomato sandwich - no room for cake, so unless Fg wants some it's all yours Verdun 

Anyone know what this is please

There you are - Fg says it will be fine - I'm just being a bit cowardly

To be honest I wouldn't split it now - it'll just be forming it's flower buds - that doesn't mean that it won't work, but personally I wouldn't want to take the risk.

However, if you can dig up a huge rootball and move it quickly and water it in well it probably won't notice it's been moved. 

But you say it's huge - how huge is it?  Perhaps splitting it would be ok ..........
