If you get rid of these particular pigeons, some more will come and take their place.  Wasn't it Aristotle who said 'Nature abhores a vacuum'?

Are they woodpigeons or feral town pigeons, or collared doves or  .......... ???

Blackberries flower and fruit on growth produced the previous year, so you should get your fruit next year

If you scroll down on this link you'll find a Q&A about pruning old mulberry trees, which I think will answer your question.

Hope that's helpful

Budleja dying

There are lots of different varieties of buddleia available now - have a look at what's available and choose another.

And if that is attacked in another 20+ years is that so bad?  Just part of the rich cycle of life.

The woodboring insects don't go for young growth, they like proper woody trunks, so your new shrub will be safe for quite a while.

Good morning all  

Wonder where Pdoc is now?

We had a lovely day yesterday - waaaaaaaaaaay too much food at the picnic as usual, so it was all shared out and taken home - don't think I need to go food shopping for a week!  The weather was kind to us and there was only one downpour and that was as we were packing up - we all crammed into our friends' campervan for the duration.

We didn't get back until really late (well, late for us anyway) and as OH  doesn't work Mondays we'll spend a slow day today

This morning is damp ad overcast which is what is forecast for the next few days, until it starts to warm up for the weekend again

My labrador used to enjoy sneaking strawberries from the fruit patch - he enjoyed them and in moderation they do no harm to dogs.  He also enjoyed raspberries and blackberries too.

Hello folks   lovely day with friends - talk about four seasons in one day!  But lots of sunshine too, lovely food and lovely company, and the evening spent in a lovely pub.

Tell you more about it later.
