Bed of weeds?

It does look rather like a bindweed behind the Chaenomales.

I did BM, but we had a couple of dodgy bags, where the sunflower hearts were sent in loose woven sacks and had obviously been left for sometime out in the rain and become sodden wet - probably the delivery company ... within a few days the sunflower hearts had all stuck together and started to go mouldy.  I got my money back promptly but it's left me wary.  


The last couple of bags I bought from the local garden centre when they had a big price reduction on ...... they've got a 20% off sale coming up so I'll get some more then.

Thanks BM   I'm sure it'll be fine in a day or so - just not very pretty at the moment 


I'm buying bird food in something like half hundredweight sacks that Pa's stockfeed used to come in. 

New to growing potatoes.

Just been watching a sparrow feed a young 'un.  The baby sat on a branch about 18" away from the feeder and mum had to keep darting back and forth those few inches to feed it.  I kept thinking "surely it'll get the idea in a minute!" but it didn't happen.

 Yes, youngsters of all sorts have a lot in common 

Help Please!

Using cayenne/chilli in the garden causes harm to birds and mammals as it can cause ulcers around eyes, on paws, in beaks etc.
