You never feel there is a clique unless you are not in it. And by rude I mean terse, snippy even or abrupt and those that are, are usually telling others to lighten up. Just my impression/experience of this site that's all. Doesn't stop me looking atm.

I have to say that I find this forum cliquey and some of the posts can come across as almost rude. I just tend to read posts now and now hardly post anything myself.

Wildlife gardening...hopes for the future

I have started guerilla gardening. I live on a cul-de-sac that has supported housing for vulnerable people attached and we have large swathes of grass outside tended [at our expense] by a gardening team. By the side of my house outside of my fence - I am the last of the terrace - I have 4 large evergreen oaks but its a huge area and I put all my logs out there and usually cover it with the leaves I get. I have also started to throw seeds on the bank that does get some sun - did some this morning - and am hoping to colonise it with wildflower seeds and some california poppies. I am even thinking of taking my guerilla gardening to some verges around here. Perhaps I should invest in a balaclava.

Talkback: Planting snake's head fritillaries

I saw some packets of fritillarie seeds at the GC this week. Would be cheaper if you wanted a lot but I don't know how successful they would be.

My local council have been using block planting of verbena bonariensis this year. Perhaps not for you but it looks glorious and it is alive with flying things.

Would it be at all suspicious if we all wrote? I would like one though.

With all these decorative 'bird cages' around -online and in shops - some are very attractive and if you are careful and choose one with the right size gaps you can put a fat ball or seed feeder inside and keep squirrels and other large feeders out and they look very lovely to boot. And of course the birds don't get the irony.

I took over this garden and it is over run with it. It seems to be a bit of a weed here.
