There are many plastic feeders with the green tops and perches that you cant take apart to PROPERLY clean

? Who sells ones that you can take apart , place in a bucket over night and re assemble

I dont want germs or infections to build up in the tubes that could affect the birds

I have a Trachelospermun or jasminoides and was wondering as it says its a "climber " whether it will climb up my B & Q garden shed 

? Does it cling to wood or is it just walls etc

On a separate tack..............

Blackbirds love cut up apples so if you are able feed them espescially as winter is coming

Watching them " hopping in " from the bottom of the garden is a joy

ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with gardening, too!

Totally agree

All we can do is support the local Green Energy initiatives by investing in them to produce MORE and MORE energy by Publicly Owned Green Energy collectives

Here is an example........I am not a financial adviser just a hater of the Big 6 and all that Global Companies represent !!

I use Ovo a local company in Bristol because they are human beings on the end of the phone and they send me an email and I email back my readings immediately

This is my experience of growing garlic

Originally I bought some from an online supplier and they were OK

In my 2nd year I bought some from them again and some from my local fruit and veg shop and they both grew OK

I pulled all my garlic some 2 months ago and I will have fresh garlic for another 5 months 

I have not investigated whether fertiliser is needed or whether it would make bigger or better cloves

? Was the fertiliser just some local fertiliser from a farm or the IOW shop or was it from a mass produced source that trys to maximise its sales

Over to you
