Anyone done any gardening today?

Loads more dead bramble and blackthorn suckers through the shredder.

Anyone know what eats the bark of the young blackthorn? My suspicion is voles. I've seen the damage before but usually in hard winters when other things are under snow. We haven't had any lying snow, just a few flakes one night

That's how it goes Forester. No woodpeckers on my count but they've been drumming all round ever since.

I wonder how many of these plants have been ripped out of their native habitat to die in UK gardens

Berberis darwini question

Is it in the house? It will grow long and lanky in the warmth with low light.

I'd start getting that outside on nice days.

and I would cut back the rambling bits

I agree with Edd

What sells well at charity plant sales?

Posted: 25/01/2015 at 13:40

Hi Frank, for knowledgeable customers, anything they won't find in the nearest GC.

If you're a seed grower look at Chiltern seeds, Plant World Seeds and Special Plants (Derry Watkins), There are others and someone else may provide the names but these are the ones I've tried and found successful.

Otherwise, for charity plant sales generally, anything that's in flower at time of sale. or bedding plants

Daily Bird Sightings 2015

There were 2 buzzards in one of our poplars before I was up this morning so I had to get up and do the count so they could be included. Nothing else of note, the usual collection of tits, finches, blackbirds, robin and our resident moorhen.

No show from any woodpeckers or jays and no fieldfares or redwings so it didn't matter that I can't tell them apart

I'd love more wildlife friendly acres oneofseven. We're very hemmed in by spray happy farming. Things will improve though, a strip of native shrubs has just been planted on our longest boundary

Provided maintenance isn't given to the farmer things should get better
