Even our natives bite if cornered Welshonion. A sharp little nip

That pond has its attractions LF but it's not a wildlife pond. More plants and less hard stuff required for that.

Will my euonymous climb up the fence?

There was one going up a tree in a garden where I worked. Probably Emerald gaiety rather than Emerald and Gold. But I've never got to stick to anything.

My germination check today revealed that Polemonium brandegeei had germinated. In a while I shall prick them out. Then pot them on. Then they can be planted out to join the dozens that will germinate in the garden with no help from me. 

That's true insanity

Old Grow bags - not used

I've mixed a bag of old with a bag of new to make something that will do for short term potting up prior to planting out of the hardy stuff that I grow

Plant ID please

 Ruscus aculeatus, butchers broom. It's a shade plant and can join a native hedgerow though it won't be tall.

 

How to make a Leylandii hedge more wildlife friendly

Posted: 25/02/2014 at 14:20

Hi Ruth

re the deadwood, it's always very dry under leylandii. You're probably doing the best you can with it.

birds will peck around for food under shrubs whether the ground is bare or covered but the more plants there are the more food there will be

keep the new plantings to single insect friendly plants for best effect. The more different species you have, the more wildlife you will please

The great thing about next boxes is watching them. The birds are just as happy in garden shrubs, hedges and leylandii

Hard question this one Andrew.

Lots of different species and varieties of all these. What have you got?
