Unusual bird behaviour

Posted: 05/09/2014 at 21:02

I have counted 14 Sparrows living in our smallish garden. One day they were all lined up on the fence taking in turns to go to the water feature for a drink. Cutest thing I have ever seen!

Blueberry bush lost all its leaves

Drainage issues kill a lot of plants, learned this mistake. I always make sure theres a good size hole at the bottom of the pot, and I only put 1 crock over this hole.

This stops a build up of soil around the hole and means the water can drain away easily.

Leaf Drop is  always caused by stress of some kind.

Usually by Under/Over watering. My blueberry bush is still in full leaf.

This is due to the soil getting dry. Happened to a few of mine this year.

Chocolate Cosmos

The leaves at the centre of the plant may just be old and the upper leaves will probably block out sunlight to them.

It could be erratic watering, usually letting the plant dry out causes leaves to go brown and shrivel.

Could you post a pic? I could probably diagnose it better then.

I grow chocolate cosmos in the ground and flowers right up until November

The plant is too big to bring indoors and the days are slowly getting shorter, I cant see any flowers producing fruit to be honest either :P

The plant only cost me 80p so its not a bad return!
