they do like a warm sunny spot and do not over water if at all until you see growth.

moving a jasmine/climber

It may be because you have not pruned it or cut it back. Mine likes to cut back or clipped like a hedge to provide flowers and this year was very good .I would take cuttings as well as pruning it now and you can move it as long as you water it well for sometime until it is settled.

Can anyone help identify what bird this is?

For those with cat, fox or other animal problems....

we have foxes and badgers plus cats that burst through the fences leaving a hole to be repaired  so in the end we decided to leave one hole for them all to pass through but on the whole we live with how it is and clear up if we have too and devise all sorts of home protection for the seeds e.t.c. that don't cost a thing.

Manure

depending on your soil(at the moment I can not do a thing as my clay soil is waterlogged) I would dig a trench and put your manure in that ready for your beans and really you needed to put it on well before you need to plant out or put seeds in. My husband does this in autumn and early spring usually.
