Hi Mrs S, I was told you don't need two bushes to grow blueberries but if you plant two they both get more berries on them

Hi ,yes its spring here now but there are no leaves and the branches look brown, I think they are dead I will have to go and get some more and coverthem so the hens don't get at them again

Yay, I love Hellebores and have been desperate to plant some but have held off in case they get eaten, just out of interest what type of Hellebore do you have I did plant some tulips and other bulbs but I  think the squirreks might have got to them as non of them have come up

I checked the branches today and they are going brown on the ends but are green further down, I was tempted to prune them back but then though this might make it worse

Don't laugh but I was wondering if there are any plants that chickens won't eat. I have four hooligans free ranging in my garden for some part of the day and while I'm not too precious about my garden I would quite like to have some sort of flowers to look at. I have discovered that they don't like Lavender, Pieris and Bay trees, plus some other unidentified evergreen shrub that I have had in pots for years plus I have a hedge of Escallonia that they don't seem interested in.Has anyone got  any other ideas on what I might plant to brighten up my garden but that will stand up to chickens. I don't mind shrubs but would like something with some colour if possible...Thanks M

Hi, I have two blueberry plants growing in a tub, they did well last year but unfortunately my chickens got hold of them and stripped all the leaves off the plants at the end of last summer. They now look like they have died with no new leaves showing, is it going to be possible to save them or is it too late, Thanks M
