Also, according to Wiki Apple- of-Peru and a member of the nightshade family. Very beautiful blue flowers.

This plant grows to a metre or so high, returns every Autumn and several more now reappear. It has flower buds that look like the Cape gooseberry and grows happily in my unheated greenhouse over the winter.  Help please!

Is it safe to hang up my hanging baskets - they are taking up valuable space in my greenhouse but I don't want any frost damage.  Advice please.

I understand it's a charm of goldfinches; magpies come in a charm, you are right, but also a "conventicle" - charm is easier to say. I too like their antics and a "squabble" might be more apt!

Can anyone identify these?

..... having now read the subsequent blogs, maybe not!  Could be comfrey - excellent for fertiliser-making, but smelly.

I agree, the first is foxglove seedlings - I have hundreds in with my geraniums and I'll leave them as the bumblebees love the flowers.

Talkback: Feeding birds in summer

I feed the birds a variety of food - mixed wild bird seed, peanuts late in the season when the babies have grown up and mixed seed plus mealworms. I also give them leftovers with home made wholewheat bread mixed with cooked pasta and grated cheese which is a great favourite.
