Fruit tree as gift - advice please!

Posted: 05/01/2014 at 21:06

I can highly recommend .  They have a wide range of trees and shrubs, their website is full of useful information and I have found Stephen Read very helpful when contacted by phone and email.  The fruit trees and bushes I've bought  have been of excellent quality.  

I have no connection with the above business other than as a satisfied customer.

Feeding large birds

Posted: 05/01/2014 at 20:57

Magpies seem happy to eat virtually a whole suet block a day in one of those wire cages which hangs from a branch of the big tree.  I rarely put one out there, as if you've got magpies in your garden the smaller birds will go elsewhere - magpies rob their nests and eat their eggs and fledglings.  

I know that magpies have got to live and feed their young too, but I do prefer not to attract them into the garden.

Bird feeders

Our goldfinches are singing as they flitter about in the branches of the big ash trees in the morning, but they're not visiting the feeders very much at the moment - there's plenty of other food out there in the woods, fields and grazing marshes still.

Hey folks .... probably better to do as Mark suggested and send him your email address via Private Message rather than put it on a public forum for all and sundry to see ............... if you don't know about Private Messaging  hover your cursor over Mark's avatar and you'll see a button marked Message - click on that and you'll find you can send him a message which can't be seen by the rest of the world.
