I popped some in with the carrots after hearing about the carrot fly... don't know if they'll do anything but I'm hoping so

Ooooh great idea... thanks I will get some in that case I'm assuming any fine grit will do and that it doesn't need to be anything in particular?

Thanks... yeah it is a lovely size and past the willow tree is an allotment area with apple trees and lots of beds... its just a bit overgrown at has been neglected so its just trying to get it in some sort of order. 

Yes have two small boys and a little girl due September (arggh!!) so I garden when I can... I do love gardening though !!

Awww... thank you everyone... you are all so kind We moved from Bedfordshire and were amazed at the garden we could get for our money. We had a 12ft x 10ft garden before so this is heaven ! 

Awww... such a shame birdy that you had to get rid of it Some people really don't think about trees and thier eventual size when they put them in do they 

I don't know how old our Willow is... the couple before us had lived her 17 years and it was there before them. I want it to keep going forever ...although sadly I know that it won't 

Thanks Fairygirl... I'm a bird lover too and we are blessed with so many birds and squirrels and even have a pheasant coming for breakfast. We are very spoiled here !
