I have a pear tree about 5 years old fruiting this year looks good and I would like to move it into a larger pot what would be the best time , compost and is a wooden planter better than a terracotta pot.

Its almost over so I normally would pull it up this time of year knowing that its either left behind roots or seeds have fallen, its in the wrong place , as there is an asiltbe behind it . I will try the Niger seeds as this is the first year I have put seeds out in the summer months normally its winter and spring I feed . This time I tried sunflower hearts again the first  time I have bought them and suddenly its like all the Kingdom of birds have come to share the treats .. thanks for your replys all.

Be assured I shall leave the seed heads a while long and work hard on my self to be a less of a tidy gardener ,but like you the I shall be cutting of the Lupins and delphiniums heads.

A first time visiter to my garden this year has been a group of gold finches and green finiches while watching them feeding from the bird table I noticed one was eating the seed heads from the Stokesia Aster which has almost finished flowering , I did want to pull it up should I leave it there a while longer? do birds normally find food from Stokesia aster plants ? .

Thanks for the kind comments the lupins are in there second year now last year being nothing like this year they have about 10 flowering spikes on them they ........the delphiniums growing alongside are about to flower and look like putting on a nice display still does not make up for the demise of my 12 year old Japanese acer which is now cut down to the stump with 2 buds slowly growing again.
