I guess you could drill some small holes to let water, but not seed, through.  And yes, a really tough glue might do it

My bird visitors are spoilt by sunflower hearts and will hardly touch standard mixed bird feed so I doubt these fancy feeders would work in my garden.

I was more interested in how she attached the pizza/baking trays to the bottom of feeders.  I'm not much good at DIY but if anyone has any ideas I would be grateful.

Hi, Margi! Last time I saw you we were on a northern Beeb boarders day out, looking round gardens in Cheshire, after visiting Trillium's nursery - lovely brilliantly sunny day. I think you were in the middle of studying for a horendously difficult RHS exam. Can anyone tell me how many years ago that was? Three or four, I think. Joany?  

12 September 2009, Greeneddy   (just checked with my photos of the event!)

Mm-they got today wrong-I had plans for this morning outside as well.

The tension is building-there is a lot of red and white to be seen already

Congratulations Geoff . Are you going to be out on the street tooting your car horn etc 

(from a Leeds fan )

PS: They got the weather forecast wrong here as well!!

How to give feedback about the new site

Hi Zoomer 

The links are still available on the Beeb Gardening page if that's what you mean (although it says the messgeboard is still open, and according to the desktop calendar it's still December - which probably accounts for the current weather ).  Don't know about links on this site though.

Love the photos everybody

That's some project Eddie - hope we get to see some progress pictures, and I think that's the neatest veg plot I've ever seen !!!

Little-ann - great to see Muncaster.  Been there numerous times as we've been holidaying in Ravenglass foe the last 17 years or so!!  We were there at the beginning of May 3 years ago when the bluebells & rhodos were a bit further on ................

 Will try and sort out some photos of my own tiny little patch soon !

who is talking to who?

Think the only option is to quote the message Toonia*.  Someone has asked the same question on Goldilock's Welcome Thread.  I suppose you could always say who you were replying to and the time of the post.

* And nice to hear from you.  Don't know if you remember me but I lurked for years and got to 'know' you all before I finally joined up so that I could go on the Harlow Carr outing in 2008
