Holly Blue Angel pollinator

Any male holly that is in flower at the same time (and that is most of them) will do the job.

Topbird  Pretty sure it's not that - I've had noro virus (3 Christmases ago!) and this isn't it - the upset innards is my usual reaction to a high temp. This is what OH had, congested head and chest and sore tonsils. No flu-like aching limbs. 

Why don't the birds visit my feeder?

In this cold weather the birds know what's good for them - fatty foods provide the much higher level of energy they need to keep warm.

 Well, now we know why HM and D of E didn't travel to Sandringham by train - and why Wills and Kate took their two to the in-laws' for Christmas instead of spending it with the Royal family - last thing you want with two under-fives is a lurgy like this


Another dose of Imodium taken ........ sorry if that's too much info

I've not been taking cold medication, just a couple of doses of cough mixture and some paracetamol so it's definitely part of the lurgy


LG - could the bird have been a visiting Redwith or Fieldfare?

Courgettes

Posted: 06/01/2017 at 14:22

Lack of water weaking the plant and making it susceptible to powdery mildew.


Courgettes need lots of humous in the soil so that it is very moisture retentive, and plenty of watering - at least a bucket full per day when it is flowering/fruiting.
