What have I planted here?

That was my thought Pansyface - but we are rather clutching at straws here aren't we - Craigh hasn't even told us if he sowed flowers or veggies - does he have any of the old seed packets lying around?

Do Bees fight?

The worker bees don't actually live very long, and if they die or are unwell in the nest the other bees will remove them and deposit them outside to remove danger of infection etc spreading.

We're having some really strong gusts of wind at the moment with very quiet spells in between - a little while ago I thought my name might be Dorothy and I lived in Kansas

I think Vino collapso might be on the cards here too ...........

Well, MIL says she loses quite a few gooseberries to blackbirds, and just put 'gooseberries blackbirds' into Google and see what you get!

Try the RSPB site - if they don't have what you want you could try contacting them for advice - if they don't know I can't imagine that anyone else will
