Where are all the birds ?

Posted: 04/12/2012 at 22:29

The birds are late coming back to the garden this year, but today I had sparrows, blackbirds, dunnocks,and a blackcap, and of cause the blasted pigeons. I have a seed tray on the floor  just outside the patio door so I can see up close who comes to visit.To stop the pigeons eating all the food I cover it with a large hanging basket cage which helps stop the pigeons getting the food. The  small birds hop in and out quite happily and the blackbirds  soon pluck up the courage to go in the cage,  the pigeons pick up the sunflower hearts that fall from the hanging feeders.

Hi, I have two peppers on my kitchen windowsill, one I grew from seed, and one from G.W.live,  this year, I "ve only had one pepper on each plant , but they still look heathly, should I keep them in the kitchen over winter or start again next year. Regards Lyn

I would keep it simple for now, leave the patio for the kids to ride their bikes on and lawn the rest,adding flower beds when you decide where you want them.you don't have to do it all at once,next year you will have more time to make little changes,this way it won't seem like such a big job. good luck

Lawn levelling with step

I find it easier to lift turf when it is wet as it is easier to slide the spade under it.

I have seen blackbirds eat ants in the lawn, and wonder if ant treatments do them any harm
