Hungry beaks?

Posted: 10/07/2014 at 09:07

Mine too, I use a 2ltr jug full of seeds, mixed with sunflower hearts, thats in the feeders, then 2 fat ball a day, every other day I use a suet block, they cost me a forune, but I love the reward of mums bring baby birds to feed when they are out of the nests.

Mr and Mrs pheasant came the other day with her brood, she has 10 and a week later they are all still going, unusual that nothing has had them, they are wonderful parents.

I buy the suet blocks from Amazon, 7.99 for 10, post free if you buy 2 boxes.comes in 2 or 3 flavours, birds love them all.

If you buy fat balls, please dont use the net bag, i have had to cut birds free after getting feet and beaks caught in them

Perhaps someone knows why I cant post properly on android tablet, and cant get private messages. The site is nice, but not modern mobile device friendly.

I just foliar fed my plants first time.But..

Always best to do that in the evening when the sun is not so hot.

I dont know how often to do it,  I dont do too much plant feeding, only on tubs and baskets. Then not on the foliage. What does the instructions say?

My chive flowers have looked lovely this year and have been covered in bees. I am thinking of growing them in the flower border, not just on the veg patch.

Just to say a big thank you to Bekkie and Victoria, the roots arrived safely and in perfect condition, I am off to pot them up now.

Bekkie, Do you have a paypal acc. I have your email and will pop some money in.

Victoria, if you let me know your email I can do the same for you, or if you both prefer, I would be happy to send a cheque.

Please dont be out of pocket with this, the postage mounts up after a while.
