I had a young apple

Oh dear - if the Round Up has got on the suckers or the bark of the tree then I think it's finished.

Jumbo pea nuts

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.

I agree Nut

Ants vs lettuce

Posted: 17/06/2015 at 13:56

The lettuce and rockets will be absolutely fine to eat as long as you don't use any pesticides to try to clear the ants.

The ants like nice dry soil for their nest - I suspect that during your week away the soil in the container was dryer than the rest of your garden and the ants moved in.  If you water your plants, give the soil a good soaking andthen  keep the it damp the plants will be happy and the ants will move out

Information please

I'm sorry, but if I were you I'd move it - it is growing right on the boundary line and flopping over their garden.  They'd be within their rights to cut it back to the boundary line. 

They obviously have different tastes to you - they like clear lines and clean gravel.  Presumably they don't impose their taste on you and if I were you I'd avoid appearing to try to impose my taste on my neighbours' garden.

Good neighbourly relations are worth a mint!
