My tete a tete's and snowdrops have been flowering for a couple of weeks, purple crocus about a week. The tulips are leafing but no flower buds yet. Hydrangea leaves starting to come out. I'm west of Manchester. I think I need to start sowing my chillies, toms, aubergines - had the potting tray with compost on the kitchen worktop for the last two days! 

Cosmos seeds.

Hi Lyn. I bought the 125l Verve on Sunday.Not opened it yet, but if it's as good as yours I'll be happy. I did notice that several bags of different brands/sizes had been "caught" on something before I got there  so I checked them out before buying.

I put mine in the bath and run the shower head over them - usually every 2-3 days until the aphids have gone.

Talkback: Garden birds in the snow

Lately we have had pigeons, blackbirds, robin, great tits,coal tits, long tailed tits, maybe blue tits. We put out bird food and scraps, and every frosty morning I go out and put fresh lukewarm water in the water dish Birdwatch weekend so far - one blackbird and one robin. I agree with oldchippy - they have gone on holiday! 

Has anyone got any snow yet?

It snowed here ( west Manchester ) yesterday evening. Much of it is still here this morning ( only a light layer though ) and it's snowing now.
I feel sorry for all who have to travel in it. Luckily, I'm retired.

Is there an ap for GW? I am fed up with going through "Safari", then "Google", then "Gardener's World" to get at the forum. On my laptop, I have it on my favourites bar. Unfortunately, it takes forever to boot up - iPads are SO much quicker. I've looked in the Appstore but can't find it.

what do you think is the best make of bird food you have bought?

Dripping is harder than lard - would that work better? You would need to melt it first, then mix in the goodies. If you have any empty coconut feeders you could put the dripping mix in them. I keep meaning to have a go myself but not yet got round to it.

Snow stopped now - nothing stuck. Sky def has a grey cast, maybe more up there.
