Bossy Birds!

Posted: 19/12/2014 at 15:31

It's the robin round here - he chases all the other birds off, even when the hanging table and tube are full!! They just work round him when he's had his fill.

Merry Christmas to all.

bizarre situation- what would you do?

Well done Weyplotter - glad you have got your plot after all the hassle - and right next to your other one! It will make it much easier to maintain.

Another thought - could the plot holder have "passed on" his plot to someone who wasn't on the waiting list and didn't want to wait for their name to come to the top of the list?? If the original owner has moved from the area why would they want to keep the plot? Was the letter on the plot taken by the original owner or the new owner?? I would certainly look into this - especially as you had asked about an extra plot previously.

Could it be that the previous plot holder who has "paid up to date fees and been seen working on the plot" was actually mistaken for you who has just paid the fees and has been working on the plot???? Has any other work been done on the plot besides the work that you did? Maybe the steward thought the old plot holder had returned. I hope you get things sorted out soon - let us know.

Pansyface - it wouldn't be half finished. You can't REALLY leave bubbly wine or it will go flat - that's my excuse anyway!!!!

I use corks from bottles of cava - they are fatter than normal corks and rounded at the top. You do need to drill a hole in them first though, so you can push them onto the canes.  

Good News for Mike

Hi Katie.

just found this link for Monty's plant stakes - it seems to work, good luck.

Cane tops

I use old wine corks - cava ( or champagne ) ones are better as they are fatter and easier to drill into to make the hole for the cane.

I think I read somewhere that sheep's wool was a deterent - or was I dreaming???

I have unearthed an old sheepskin rug from the loft which needs throwing out. Could I pull the wool of it and use round my seedling and plants I don't want my cougettes going the same way as my daughter's.
