Chickweed - a common weed of disturbed land - it got it's name as it was chopped up and fed to young poultry.  Cagebirds like it too - and it's very good as a salad veg or in an egg sarnie

I do that Nut

They look familiar but I can't put a name to them - I certainly wouldn't pull them out until you know what they are. 

Something keeps saying 'daisy' to me -   Shasta - something along those lines ........... but I'm probably wrong

Sounds a very 'unusual' set up to me Clari - which is why I suggested they get the best information available - there's very little that Kew doesn't know about seeds

We only get squirrels around here very rarely - usually around acorn time - but OH spotted one on the feeders this afternoon - when we go out he lurks at the top of the ash trees - we've brought the sunflower heart feeder in for a while - hopefully he'll give up and go away

Clari !!!!!!!! (hugs) and lots of 'em xx

We'll also have to find you some nice colourful shrubs that do like your soil

Just had a big field mushroom baked with blue cheese for lunch - luscious!!! 

Now I shall continue to sort out the last bookcase - Wonky, make room for some gardening magazines and a few cookery books!!!  


I hope Kew will forgive me ......... see Tree Seeds thread
