Making your own hoops for netting

ON a recent allotment tour I saw what look like blue plastic water pipe being used. The sort we used to run a water supply to the GH, about an inch in diameter (ish)

Plant ID please

They're very clever birds. I like to watch them with fat balls in  string bags.

I like my fat balls in the feeders for preference but the jays manage better with the bags, hooking them up onto a branch and demolishing them

I'm not sure they breed often enough in the UK to worry about what the caterpillars eat.

If you separate the link to one drive from the rest of the text and then 'enter' it shows up as a link like the one in Dove's post.

I could see the pic bit I can't tell one houseplant from another

Hi Philippa, the bedstraw if for the caterpillars (if we get any). The adult moths seem happy with any nectar producing flower. Ceratostigma here. Maybe because it's late floweringand we rarely see them early in the year

I haven't got much ladies bedstraw at the moment but lots of hedge bedstraw. Not sure they're breeding here though, It takes 2 and most years I only see one.

Polypots?

I've used them, they're OK but if you have to move them around and they change shape you can dislodge roots.

I associate them with bedstraws Lyn but as non natives they've probably had to adapt a bit.

Any wine makers out there?
