Blackbirds nested in the mower shed last year, they reared the babies successfully in spite of having a ride on mower started up, just underneath the nest, once a week. I can't push the mower so they had to put up with it and they did

Dove said

Busy Lizzie, Nutcutlet and Woody Woodgreen have what appear to be vast gardens compared to mine - but that doesn't invalidate their knowledge and experience does it?  And I'm pretty sure Nutcutlet isn't a secret millionaire either 


 You're right Dove, I'm not   I can't see the point in criticising. It's not a perfect programme for all, how could it be? We have as many different gardens and styles as we have forum members. Large. small, urban, rural, veg growers, flower growers, experienced, novice, dog lovers, dog haters,  the list goes on. I wouldn't want the job of trying to please everyone.   I don't watch live, I use iplayer, anything I don't fancy can be fast forwarded. I just like looking at plants

A lot of mine have gone blind where they've become over-crowded. Some types can keep going much longer than others without splitting up. I have 2 types growing in grass, 'February Gold' has more flowers every year, 'Tresamble' has just about lost the will to live. Both sold as 'suitable for naturalizing in grass' some 15 or 20 years ago.

Also some of mine have become very shaded by maturing shrubs/trees. They've gone quiet as well. 

For me, rather than try and resurrect them, I thought I'd invest in some new varieties this year.

What Are These

It only takes one, in your garden or next door, to produce thousands. 

I've got thousands.

There are some similar but it's irrelevant really unless you're a botanist. They're weeds

Plant them or put them straight on the compost heap shazza. They don't store.

Mine have bigger nibble holes than that pansyface. The muntjac like them as well.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Cold out there, easterly wind. Did some GH stuff, pricking out and watering.

 OH spread a heap of shreddings


Might do a bit more this afternoon. Might not
