coprosma porto red

Thanks for the info, I will bring mine indoors, do you know if I can prune it as it looks rather untidy and straggly not as compact as when I bought it 6 months ago

I have as many as 20 Goldfinch at a time two or three times a day.  They seem to come in a flock (sorry charm) and all fly away together. I feed Niger seed and chopped sunflower hearts.  I also get Green Finch most types of Blue Tits Tree Creepers and sparrows.  We also have resident blackbirds and a Jenny Wren in the garden.

Slugs and snails

Thanks very much for all the info re slugs and hedgehogs.  I feed the hogs every night with nwildlife food from the petshop supplemented by bits of chicken and dried fruit. They seem to enjoy it as the bowl is cleared every night.  They also like a drink of water my bowl is emptied most nights

I can vouch for the fact that the garlic spray really works . I have used it for three years now and have beautiful hostas no holes in any of them.  I spray once a week with the solution and whoopee no sl;ugs or snails.  I also have wto hedgehogs I feed every night so don't want to use slug pellets
