Talkback: How to make a hanging bird feeder

Posted: 16/01/2016 at 15:36

Fat balls are balls of suet mixed with seed. We have special feeders to put them in,  We also get square blocks of the same stuff that go in square feeders.;/fat_ball_feeders#.VppjalKfM7A


Hedge Borders

Posted: 16/01/2016 at 15:33

I think hedges in gardens are a throwback to hedges in fields. They are markers of the edge of a property. Hedges within gardens make rooms in the manner of Vita Sackville West at Sissinghurst. Each room in a large garden can have a different theme. In many gardens the hedges are there for shelter. A hedge will filter wind and there is a more benevolent micro climate than an open field. A wall or fence that is solid does not do this,instead eddies and vortices are set up which can be more damaging than the wind on its own.

If you want a green smoothie, can I recommend Kale.

Comfrey caused an epidemic of liver failure in China when it was picked by mistake for another herb. It doesn't need a lot to cause damage.

Grow lights

Posted: 15/01/2016 at 20:44

The hydroponics people sell growlights. If you are prepared to have a big electrickery bill, they're fine. If you are growing for showing they are useful to extend the season. For normal folk who just grow their own to eat or admire, they're not useful.
