I have them in the garden from when we came here,but they are on the decline.They like damp shady spots and do not like being disturbed and of course sometimes they need thinning out.if you leave them alone ,they will spread .

Greenhouse size?

The worst mistake in buying a green house is, buying one that's too small.We bought the 8ft by 4 and that is too small,unless you have no room and we regretted it ever since .Buy the biggest you can afford and have space for.

Where are all the birds ?

Posted: 26/11/2012 at 16:07

I noticed that alot of birds are absent,more so than normal.Blackbirds in particular are noticeable by their absence .It is noticeable that the flock of black head gull s are missing from the common as are the pied wagtails,very few compared to what use to be.paranoia setting in about the lack of birds.

favorite clematis of the spring.

Too true,I have to change the food supply ever so often as they get mouldy.Sometimes the birds do not bother with the feeding stations as after the mad frenzy in summer they seem to take a break.

Water butt

Posted: 24/11/2012 at 11:45

Here in the west we have more than our fair share of rain,my water butts are both full and the overflow into the pond is over flowing .the bottom of my garden has reverted back to being a duck pond.In  a nearby wood there has been  a land slide of trees onto a path.Unless this rain stops I fear we will just float away even if I live on a hill.

Talkback: Growing fruit for birds

I think you will find that there will be plenty of fruit for birds ,not only will they peck at the fruit you have not picked but all the fallen fruit and with all those bird feeding stations and left overs,I don't think they are going to go short.
