Has anyone else received a PM from one of those idiots who were posting inane tosh on the forum last night?

I advise you not to open the link. 

Just copy it to Nora and she'll deal with it in the morning.

HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

Posted: 04/04/2016 at 19:08

Just had a photo from son - a woodpigeon sitting on the windowsill inside his house

He said he pulled into his driveway and looked up at the window where his cat always sits - there was the cat at one end of the window ....... looking at the woodpigeon at the other end of the windowsill looking back at the cat!!! 

It can only have got in down the chimney.

It must have been in the house for some time ... he has a lot of feathers and pigeon poo to clear up ... the cat is very angry that my son has stopped all his fun

grubs

Posted: 04/04/2016 at 16:49

There are good grubs - there are also some very special grubs like Stag beetle larvae - I know it's a sort of instinctive reaction to finding bugs, but I don't squidge things unless I know 100% it's going to do real harm in my garden and there's no alternative and it's not an endangered species.

If they've got legs they're not vine weevil grubs.

To post a photo you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar where you type your post.

Or you can put the photo on a photo-hosting website and post the link here.

Pesky squirrels

Cayenne won't harm the plants, but it may harm the squirrels - if they get it on their paws and then rub their eyes (as squirrels and cats do) the cayenne will burn and ulcerate their eyeballs, causing excruciating pain and blinding them.  I'm sure you don't want that to happen.

This was spoken about on Gardeners Question Time just the other week.

Clematis advise

Posted: 04/04/2016 at 14:12

If it's in a pot that might be why it's struggling - they really like to get their roots down into cool damp soil.  How big is the pot?

Just for now, give it some specialist clematis feed. 

Winter is finally over here :)

Now that makes me feel warmer - there's nothing like a blazing fire and a stack of firewood to make you feel snug and cosy.

What's going in the pots?

 

Clematis advise

You've definitely got some flower buds there

What variety is it?

Do you feed it with specialist clematis fertiliser?
