question ? squirrels as gardeners

Posted: 07/12/2015 at 12:37

I was wondering if it was possible to give some squirrels some seeds or bulbs that are cheap (and as an experiment) to put in my feeder which I put nuts to feed the birds and squirrels. I noticed them starting to bury the nuts and I was wondering if I could feed them something which they can bury for me and possibly forget about then maybe I will get a surprise from them this year


Talkback: Field bindweed

I always wanted to try an experiment on bind weed using a syringe with weed killer and injecting it into bind weed to see the results

Broken guitar for gardening

so fair I have screwed it to the fence, I am going to connect some strings to the trellis where I have Honeysuckle and Nasturtiums to looks like the plants are coming the guitar itself.

 Inside the hole I used, as a temporary mesaure, some of the plastic covering from a bamboo fencing packaging  to cover inside the hole to prevent any water for now. I will get to waterproof spray tomorrow  and some drain pipes and some hollowed out bamboo from the hardware store and glue the drainpipe to the back with added drainage holes just incase. Then cut up the bamboo for bees and bugs to live in. 

or something along them lines

I personally love making music and I love gardening. 

Today i looked at one of my old guitars and it looked like some over tuned the strings and it is broken. Im not too fussed about fixing it but I would love to reuse it in the garden. 

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas what I can do or any links to create a cool thing to incorporate my love of my two hobbies, while making it strong enough to last a couple of years without getting destroyed 


'With added John Innes'

Posted: 05/05/2014 at 20:29

This year I have actually been testing the John Innes compost having never used it before until recently I have notice my plants actually producing more flowers and seedlings germinating better than using normal run of the mill compost. 

I have noticed its very fine compost so it makes great for seeds and it has small brown clumps which expand into feed for the plants. I have purchased the compost from Wilkinson for about £2.50 for 60 liters.

I have seen the ones in the 99p stores and I also believe that Dovefromabove is correct in saying it is just added fertilizer in that case

I am very fortunate to live in an area of the country which is abundant in fossils (Black country) I happened to be going through a lot of old junk I was about to remove when I came across this little beauty from when I was walking with my daughter through the forest.


Recycling Tree branches (from pruning)

I never realised how much I reuse things till I write this post. Yesterday I recycled a fence panel from my parents to fit the small fence gap that was at the end of the garden
