on their way to garden near you!

had four wood pigeons squabbling on the shed roof this morning ,all over the bird seed,it was funny to watch as they slid off the roof due to the ice,and the fox I met at the front door looking for offerings,looked healthy and with cubs due in spring,she is a darling but runs the risk of humans in cars each night.

Advice needed.

the best thing ,since you like gardening parents and grandparents is to teach the children your self,its a pleasure to share your knowledge with children teaching them about the flowers and veg alongside teaching about wildlife.you  will gain and so will your children,don't leave it to others and miss out.Getting them to help  water ,sow,dig,and Identify plants.

weather and plants in pots

you need to put your pots in the shed if they are not frost proof and they need to stand on feet.Water very little during winter and put out when frost has gone.Pots need good drainage ,if you leave good terracotta pots or others outside they need to be on feet with good drainage otherwise its cracked pots.

Weil's  is a serious disease carried by rats,they contaminate water and their   urine surfaces.It is a really nasty disease that causes kidney damage at the least.Of course you can not help liking them at a distance and they are part of the wild life but they can breed at a alarming rate and can when confronted give a very very painful bite.
