Corn Cockle can kill?

Blimey, best to concrete  the garden over completely if you have a dog or child. 😀


Does anyone on here own a dog?.  My dog lived to 20, maybe I didn't grow any of those in the garden. 

Too good to be true?

thats exactly what I said Fairy, added posted they are £11.00. Quite a lot for tiny plants. 


If the OP puto those in the ground they'll be lost.

You will pay £11.for three plants, bear in mind the pots they are in are less than four inches across.


if you don't mind that, that's ok, the trouble you may get transferring them to the ground is that if you haven't got very acid soil, they will die. 


You will need to keep them in pots, water with rainwater and feed with Ericaceous feed. 


its always best, or essential that you have other plants, one on its own won't produce much fruit, it any.

Wild Bird Food

Posted: 11/09/2017 at 19:22

I buy this one, one a month, it  may not be the cheapest but it's delivered next day free and it's treated so it doesn't grow when it drops  on the soil.  It's got lots of different seeds, suet and insects , every bit gets eaten so no waste. I buy all the bird food from this seller.

Sodden hydrangea heads

The beauty of them is that they come right down to the ground, they suppress weeds, I wouldn't cut any of it down, but then I wouldn't have underplanted anything there.  This one is 15' across   and about 6' tall. You may be sorry when you don't get so many flowers next year.

They've survived massive downpours here, they don't seem to drown, I am currently emptying my baskets, some have dozens in, I've sifted through the compost and put them out for the birds. 

2017 tomatoes...

Old compost, that all sounds perfect for the average gardener😀


Failing that you can water them using a bottle of Tomorite or similar with added seaweed extract.

The last of England's red squirrels

Sad isn't it, we dispatch greys when we can but there's just too many of them. We have so many where we live in Devon.


there is a little colony in captivity breeding in Cornwall but theres no point in letting them out down here, hopefully they can release them in a non grey area. 


I like the Idea of sterilisation using the Nutella as a bait.
