Sparrow infestation in leylandii hedge

Posted: 23/10/2017 at 08:55

goodness, how sad, no wonder our wildlife is declining with attitudes like that. 

It's the leylandii that are the mis-fits

I've got no up to date info re that Mark. I should think it's hard to rid a garden of that when so many of your plants are aquilegias.

Sounds like a problem

If the pipe to the septic tank is blocked, wouldn't there be a bit of a whiff?

See original post

 probably Dove. though whiff isn't something we've had a problem with.

Be guided by the natural seeding.  Aqualegias cast their seeds as soon as they were ripe after flowering.

See original post

 That's the best time, then the babies are a good size before winter.

Too late for that now 

Sounds like a problem

I don't know about observation tanks, the system here dates from 1960. We can lift manhole covers to see if it's backing up and another over the tank to see if there's a flow in or if it's full but not draining away

Is this water in the area of the septic tank or the pipe to it?

We find a set of drain rods are essential for living with a septic tank

Sounds like a problem

and the pipe that leads to the septic tank? Is the system Ok not blocked and backing up somewhere.

Dying Oak Tree and Virginal Creeper

I like to see ivy on dead trees in woodland but climbers up a dead tree in a garden rarely look good 

Is it too late to sow a new lawn?

I agree with Fairy,

but it's about temperature and soil conditions rather than calendar time. Once germinated grass is fine under snow. (experience tells me) but if not germinated before cold and wet sets in it may rot. Cold and wet is unpredictable. Could be next week or next year.
