Talkback: Planting daffodils late

I came to Perch Hill at Christmas, I purchased more Tulips to go with the ones I had purchased through the post, didn't plant any until January, had wonderful pots of colour so planting late sometimes worth it.

Looking forward to my blueberries, apples, strawberries hoping for some pears and cherries but have lost my peach tree and apricot!. really sad about that.

Talkback: Tree peonies

what a lovely peony can't imagine any one not wanting it in their garden. my normal peony that is out in flower at the moment and has been looking quiet lovely was battered almost to death yesterday with that deluge that came from the sky, all the flimsy pink petals are now a crumpled mess.

Talkback: Slug invasion

you have to laugh, funny how slugs don't bother with weeds but put a new plant in the garden the slugs will have devoured it by morning, we seem to be fighting a loosing battle some of it is because most people can't be bothered to kill them off.

Hi! We love Bee's what's not to love, with out them the human species could be doomed, or even have to work very hard pollinating fruit and other plants by hand, so look after your Bee population for a brighter world, and think of all that Honey.  

What tree is this?

Arn't you lucky having such a beautiful tree, the birds will love the berries, in spring the blossom will be lovely for Bee's and Butterflies and Hoverflies.  

Talkback: Didiscus coerulea 'Blue Lace'

What a lovely little plant, you can be sure that half the country will be growing them next year, including me. I love so many plants it would be hard to pick out one but the Rose called Rachel is delicious perfume wonderful and looks like a ballerina frilly dress, no good for bee's but delightful all the same but my lavender more than makes up for it, Bee's buzzing round it all day long.

Talkback: Garden birds and their predators

I am so lucky with the amount and variety of birds that visit my garden, it's like a bag of allsorts, I hang up all these different feeders some of which I have large cages around to help to protect the birds whilst feeding they are expensive but worth while, starting from twenty pounds they fit over existing feeder to make an exclusion zone, my birds cost a fortune to look after but they are worth it.I don't have a cat but neighbours cats are a real nuisance.

Oh! if only they were red squirrels instead of these destructive grey rats with fluffy tails they killed most of our indigenous species off with the disease that they carry, they destroy trees and eat through every type of bird feeder ripping wire mesh apart with their vicious little teeth, bring back our charming little reds.
