Not so much a tradition but this angel come out every year. My mum made her about 35 years ago and my son cut all the little pieces of gold foil for the wings from loose tea packets.

You will need to net them well though Philippa, they are up just at the right time for the dreaded cabbage whites. I bought some very close mesh from Amazon, certainly did the trick.I made a frame work from  old plastic greenhouse poles.

I am so sorry I didn't see your post.

Perhaps a Survey worth doing...

 The pruning of the yellow globe type is different from the others, they flower on last years wood so if you prune in the Spring you cut off the flowering wood. Prune straight after flowering just lightly, then all the new growth they make through the summer produces next years flowers.

Its a job to kill them off Anderson, they do die down then come back with a vengeance in the Spring.

They probably went brown because of being in pots, they like to stretch themselves. Plant them out as soon as you can in the Spring, try to catch them before new growth comes.

Well done for spelling Gemma, 

I find my old wellies always split across the toes where I bend down in them. I bought some ankle boot wellies years ago and they show no signs of wear, I agree that you do need just something to slip on to feed the birds in though, crocs just dont do it this time of the year.

Its a good feeling when you can make use of something rather than just throw them away.

Perhaps a Survey worth doing...
