storage question

I have a large natural style garden Tracey. Lots of hardy trees,shrubs, perennials, native plants. Aimed at supporting all the resident wildlife.

I don't grow tender, double or fancy hybrid.




Thanks everyone

Perhaps you need another 'map' to find it all Nut 


I think so lily.

I failed to mention the filing cabinet. Maybe it's in there

Cost of bird food

Mine are still queuing, I'd better get out there

I note what you say about lack of birds LL. I have lots of the usual tits and finches etc but no reed buntings, bramblings or coaltits which usually turn up in winter

I don't do begonias but I think they would need frost free storage. The hardy bulbs would be fine through the summer once they're dormant.

I leave daffs in the ground.

If something is dormant it shouldn't need light, sounds like a good place 

Thanks everyone

Notebook is a good idea Clarington. One notebook at a time is very good.

One in the shed, one in the GH, one in the bedroom, one in the bookcase and one in the office is less good. I still can't find the 'where I put the snowdrops' map 


Mulching with privet

Ours gets done one a year LF. This week I hope, before the birds move in. The 'trimmings' are 3 foot long.  They'll be longer this year, we're going to reduce it by an extra 3 foot or so, we're talking about logs from that.

The mower will clear up the bits at the end

Marinated lumps, (pieces is what quorn call them). Soak them for a while in a bit of olive oil, some soy sauce or wine, herbs, garlic and whatever spices you like, They mix well with rice or pasta.

I like the whitish coloured quorn but not that brown mince. It looks too much like meat and smells bad.

It's amazing how small a heap you get from a mountain of prunings.
