Buttercups

I might carefully spray them with weedkiller and leave that to take effect in the roots, then dig them up.

Yeah we seem to have had loads pop up too :-/ darn things... I left them as the leaves looked a little geraniumlike to me now I know it was a giant error (( 

To be honest, I thought they were geraniums as well when they first started showing. 

whats this plant?

Strange how some of the nicest looking plants are regarded as weeds.Imagine if dandelions were difficult to grow, we would be spending a fortune on them.

 

Does look like willow herb.

Buttercups

Buttercups have found their way into my garden this year, they have flowered before I got around to pulling the out. They look quite nice actually, but I assume they are invasive perennials that need removing immediately?

Heres the buttercups in my garden...

Posted: 13/06/2013 at 19:14

Its about 8-9ft tall, Ive only photographed the top bit of the tree. The top of the tree  is spoiling its shape.

Pruning/Shaping my plum tree?

Posted: 13/06/2013 at 18:33

The top of my plum tree is growing a little unsightly, but Im unsure how to correct it. The top is growing away sideways. SHould I just cut it back to a lower branch? If so, will this lower branch then become the lead stem?

Nest Box Camera?

Posted: 12/06/2013 at 13:54

Following the successful fledging of chicks from my blue tit nest box over the weekend, Id like to install a camera inside for next year.

Can anyone recommend a suitable camera for fitting inside an existing nest box please?
