It's ok AuntyRach - sanity remains on BBC2 

Seedlings still yellow?

I wouldn't worry - they look healthy enough - they'll turn greener over time - of course some varieties do have yellower leaves than others. 

Pruning a new Malus Coccinella

Hi Liz

I would just leave them be - they'll grow and produce side shoots over the years.  Crab apples rarely need much if any pruning.

Bird disease

I stop feeding the birds for three weeks Aug/September (we usually take our holiday early Sept) and a few times a year we give the feeders a good scrub and a soak in Milton and then make sure they're properly dry before hanging them up again. 

Seems to work ... fingers crossed.

I would get the plants.

Plugs sound too small to fruit this year.  You're supposed to prevent first year plants from fruiting by removing the flowers. 

Identification with these evergreen plants?

I agree with Nut - it's a monster - have 'em all out. 

Who's visiting your bird feeders?

Great pic Zenjeff 

I was sitting in bed yesterday morning with a mug of coffee, watching some things falling, one after the other into our neighbour's garden................ then I saw the blackbird hurling lumps of moss from the gutter and rooftiles in the search for bugs and grubs
