Pingles - old country name for ???

Posted: 21/02/2014 at 10:05

I've heard 'area' as a paved bit outside the back of a terrace house. It's not local to me though so I may have misunderstood

Pulmonaria rubra is covered in flowers and the bees love it, They're busy round the single snowdrops as well. 

Hydrangea quercifolia - Oakleaf hydrangea

They're lovely if all is well. But; they need shelter and moisture or the leaves don't look so good, they're not 100% hardy in cold parts and they don't like alkaline soil.

Fortunately I looked all that up before I bought one for my draughty, alkaline, usually dry East Anglian garden

Bill, that's so sad. My thoughts are with you. 

Talkback: Growing mistletoe

Have you tried googling mistletoe seeds. I got some from somewhere in Lincolnshire but sorry, can't remember the name of the company.

These all sound like regional variations don't they? I wonder where the origin is

are the Cotoneaster (in my case lacteus) berries late ripening this year or is there a lot of food about. Mine are still laden. They're usually stripped before now.

a small tortoiseshell.

I think I saw one of those yesterday but such a fleeting glimpse I didn't get my eyes focussed before it had gone

Mine are done, plus the big bay bush/tree that has been left for years on account of the birds. When I got in there I didn't find a single nest though the great tits are in and out all the time throughout the year.

I try and rotate the cutting of  'thickets' so there's always somewhere to nest/roost
