When I was in our local Homebase garden centre yesterday  I was looking at some boxes of bedding and saw a blackbird fly onto the shelving with something in her mouth,then she told me off and flew out . I had a quick peep and found a half built nest in a box of begonias

When I used to work in the same garden centre we always had a Robins nest and Pied Wagtails nest somewhere in the garden centre  Once there was a Bluetits nest inside a roll of wire netting

It looks a bit like a Camellia to me  Is the foliage glossy? when was it in flower and what shape were the flowers? Maybe Escallonia of some sort

Don't give up on them yet Jean - you may get some flowers at the end of the summer- they always flower late for me

Just had a quick look at Jessies Mini Garden  I think it is wonderful that you are encouraging your little one to garden - she will learn so much - not just about gardening. Jessie is a gorgeous little girl and lucky to have a Mum like you

At the end of the Summer (what summer?) if you would like to have a go at overwintering a few cuttings on your windowsill I will happily send you some
