Wish list for seed and plant swap

Posted: 05/07/2014 at 10:39


Did you find that your phone worked for PM' s last weekend, because my tablet doesn't allow for PM either, but last weekend when the site was down, my tablet worked for PM's and for correctly typing in the post box. 

Lets hope the site breaks down again, it was marvelous for me!!!

I have sent you a PM with my address so thank you very much for the offer of the geranium roots.

Which netting /mesh for growing brassicas?

Posted: 04/07/2014 at 20:07

That net that I use would hardly let a greenfly in, it has square as usual and then diagonal.

Garden bird feeder

I would bin the rusty one, use the other one if its for peanuts, and get a new one to put mixed seeds in. They love those flat suet blocks, our pet shop sell a holder for them for just over a  pound.

Amazon have some very good suet blocks at 10 fof £7.99.

Some birds are ground feeders only so some seed down would be good. Its always best to make sure its all gone by the night, you dont want to atract rats.

If you are going to use fat balls, could I ask you to take the netting of and put them in a holder please, birds get caught, I have rescued ones with beaks and feet caught in them.

If you can afford it, a wild bird book is handy to identify what comes to your food,

not enough bees

Posted: 04/07/2014 at 18:53

Nor me Bekkie, I pick out the middles so that they make two strong shoots, then I pick off the bottom flowers, so mine havent done much.

I still have some in the freezer from last year, we had a bumper crop,

not enough bees

Some people would be horrified if I said I pick off the first flowers from the beans to allow the plant to strengthen.

Red bird bath

It is actually in the make up of the cement, nothing to do with metal

If we were to leave a glass of water for a long time, the glass would have the red deposits in it.

Maybe I should drink it then if its good for the MD
