Bird feeders

Posted: 07/11/2015 at 09:51

I use a baffle cone on a pole to stop them shinning up. I also have a squirrel buster large seed feeder on a hanging basket bracket. The bird cage type keep larger squirrels out but I found that the babies could get in.

If its not having a very heavy crop, has it lost one of its pollinators?

Bramleys  need two pollinators or they will not set a good crop.

I've got so many dings from car parks, I've given up getting upset. However, the  last one, I was in the car, and  I did get the money to pay for the repair. At the end of the day,its only plastic and metal.

 Trebah by the new bridge .

Hedychiums at Trebah seemed to be rampant in permanent planting. Here in the Midlands, i keep them in a frost free greenhouse on the dry side in winter. Left outside in the soil they die.

I'm off to take mum shopping. My rather large 5ft10inch sister is going to squash in the back seats. Whilst it's supposed to be four person car, its really only two adults in the front and two small kids in the back, unless the tops down. Its too cold for top down, more a hot bots day. Good luck with the rocking horse poo, it is Friday.....
