feeding the birds

Posted: 13/08/2016 at 21:31

we had a good few dead baby birds this year, I put it down to the cold wet weather earlier but OH has questioned what he calls the fast food outlet. Easy food with no effort is bad for us, are we doing the birds a disservice by providing food?

RHS call it Galega officinalis 'Coconut Ice'


others Galega x hybrida 'Coconut Ice'. Must be G. officinalis in there somewhere, just waiting to seed and appear as officinalis all over the garden, 


I'll stick with officinalis proper. I like it and it suits my garden. I'd leave it right out if I were you Verdun
