Sunflower - drying

Posted: 13/08/2016 at 23:10

multi-purpose composts are very variable but some are poor at draining. It's hard to tell what a plant died of sometimes.

Thank you for your thoughts everyone. I've left the feeders empty for a few days, no bodies but much warmer now I'll see what happens when I fill them again.

I'm undecided. We've never had that many dead babies before, I've never fed through summer before and it's a long time since we had such a cool wet early summer here. Too many variables.


Most od the casualties were goldfinches and green finches but that might be because that's what we've got most of. I wondered if the fat balls and sunflower seeds weren't good food for the babies

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?


Has anyone got any thoughts on this? Thoughts rather than results of on line searches would be appreciated. 

Cracks in clay

It would add some organic matter, that would be good. I sometimes worry I might fall down one of those cracks and disappear for ever.

I grow the species, never been over-keen on variegation. Nice plants for my garden
