Orchid

do not water with tap water unless it has stood for 24hrs as they do not like the chemicals in it they like rain water,heat,misting,and grow in bark as they grow on trees.do not water until bone dry and do not leave standing in water.like a bright but not too sunny a spot and you feed them when in flower with orchid feed or tomato feed once a month.

Excessive cost of seeds

I find the branded seeds very expensive for such few seeds especially when you collect seed there is so many to a pod.Cheap seeds or unbranded seeds are sometimes the best and good value.

one of mine is next to the house and collects all rain water and runs off on to the second  water butt which then flows into the pond to keep it clear,and long as it is fix well its fine,ours as been there for years no problem.

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?

it is a great spotted wood pecker and lovely they are.
