We had a blackbird caught in a mousetrap yesterday. Not one of ours, they're all inside sheds and are all still there.
OH managed to net it when it got caught up in a bush. He got the trap off but I fear it won't survive, there was blood on the trap.
Just be careful where you put these things
Sparrows were always blamed for this years ago. Have you got sparrows.
I have no sparrows are my primroses are intact. I know that proves nothing
Mine look like Rhod's, maybe a little bigger, hard to tell amongst the weeds
I find them a lot easier than remembering which of the common names belongs to which plant.
I prefer 'binomial system'. Two names, genus and species, variety or cultivar added when appropriate. Can't go wrong and no need to justify all those words that aren't Latin.
I don't think there can be one JB8, I've heard many 'experts' talking about plants using some very different pronunciations.
I have heard the word Ribes as rybes, (one syllable), ribees, reebs and reebees.
They'll be OK primrose. Quite big really. They'll grow on quicker in new compost
I think that's what it is. They're in those winter container mixes you find in GCs.
I'm always a bit suspicious of a first post with a link to a company
