The blue tits are house hunting!

Posted: 14/01/2014 at 16:20

I forgot to empty my box in the autumn - is it too late now??  I've got an old sheepskin rug which is about to be thrown out - could I put tufts of that out for them?

Don't forget the Big Garden Birdwatch in a couple of weeks' time.  

Gardening Clubs

When we lived overseas many years ago, we had a lending library as well as the tea and cakes. This was very useful for new gardeners and I learned a lot from borrowing the books. We also had gardening quizes. I can't remember if there was a prize for the winner or if it was just most points.

I wonder why you can't buy them in the shops? Glad you enjoyed them. We live west of Manchester so probably not warm or sheltered enough. 

Agapanthus

My blue ones (don't know the name) have been in the ground since I got them about 8 or 9 years ago - clay soil. They started flowering a few years ago, first 1 stalk then more - the last couple of years I have had 5 flowers. I don't do anything to them for winter and they come up every year. I have never divided them (not sure if I'm supposed to do so). We live near Manchester.

Propagating and Growing Bilberries

My mum used to make wimberry (spelling??) pies in the 50's - they were gorgeous. I've often wondered if they were the same as blueberries.

Talkback: Collecting autumn leaves

I use the lawnmower, even on the patio!! It makes it much easier and it chops up the leaves as well so they "do their thing" quicker.

Khakibos,you have just taken me back over 25 years! We used to eat gemsquash when we lived in Zambia - we loved them. I wouldn't have thought you could grow them here - let us know how you get on. I may see if I can find some seed for next year

Wow, Lily, I'm very impressed! If mine turn out half as good, I'll be a happy bunny. Mine (grown from seed) are only just flowering and in a small plastic growhouse - I believe they like to be warm.

Nut - a snail keeps getting at mine (it goes on holiday - by air - if I see it ) so would dread to think what would happen to them in the garden!!

This is one I got from the Allottment Society. I also have the RHS one.

Hope it's useful
