Do Bees fight?

Posted: 17/06/2015 at 20:10

The worker bees don't actually live very long, and if they die or are unwell in the nest the other bees will remove them and deposit them outside to remove danger of infection etc spreading.

Lots of info here

BL - Tomettes are gorgeous


We're having some really strong gusts of wind at the moment with very quiet spells in between - a little while ago I thought my name might be Dorothy and I lived in Kansas

I think Vino collapso might be on the cards here too ...........

Did you buy it in the UK?  If so I'd have thought the seller should have some idea where you can get suitable nuts

Well, MIL says she loses quite a few gooseberries to blackbirds, and just put 'gooseberries blackbirds' into Google and see what you get!

Try the RSPB site - if they don't have what you want you could try contacting them for advice - if they don't know I can't imagine that anyone else will

Good luck

What a difference a year makes

Wow!  what a difference painting the shed a light colour really takes your eye away from the neighbour's extension and brings the focus into your garden.  That's a triumph!

Monty's watering advice

Posted: 17/06/2015 at 15:46

Hi Novice 7 - If they're in a sunny spot I find they need watering virtually every day, and they need a good soaking, not just a dribble, but you have to use your eyes - if the plants start looking 'soggy' or as if they're developing mould or rot near the roots, then cut tight back on the watering.
