Sweetpeas vanished

Mice would be my guess- despite what you might think!

It's very early for sowing them anyway, so I'd sow more. There's no need to bubblewrap if they're going in a greenhouse.

Not sure what you're actually asking there Angela, or even if you're asking anything at all. This is an old and dodgy, attempt at free advertising.

If you have a query about, or need help with, starting a garden, it would be better to start a new thread. You'll get more responses that way. There isn't enough info in your post for anyone to reply to

I know Joyce - but it's small comfort...

Why don't the birds visit my feeder?

That's great Bandita. Sometimes it takes a colder spell of weather, or just when it's later in the season, to get them coming in. Once they've found your facilities, they'll keep coming back. The important thing is to keep feeding consistently, as they'll come to rely on it. Lovley to watch them isn't it?

Lovely GD - and a nice story 

I could do with splitting mine too Dove - might have to take my chances and just do it when they're flowering!

I meant a pic of the whole hedge,  or at least at  a bit of distance - sorry!  

Who's visiting your bird feeders?

The adults are quite kestrel like in colouring - and that sort of size, so I expect they're the same. Really lovely birds  

He sat for a while on the deer fence stile, as the adults swooped around. They were still in the same little area when I came down off the hill, but too far away for another pic.

Also, whereabouts in the country are you? They rarely look great up here (west of Scotland)   so it may be down to general conditions. 

A pic would help too, if you can manage it  

Bug free healthy nettles

Are they inside YoungC? I'm slightly baffled as to the reason for that!

It's no use here either, nut. Been there, done that...no point. Too flimsy for my neck of the woods.
