Hi Steve, welcome

You need to wait til they're ripe, an old technique is to put a paper bag over their heads when they're nearly ripe to collect them. I've never lost any of mine but maybe your birds have developed a taste for them.

If it looks like you're losing a lot you could put the bag on early but don't let it stay there wet or you might get rotting

Thanks Bob, I'll try and remember

Not that particular variety, no.

I don't think they're very hardy, I failed to get one through the winter on an unheated GH. They might like soil a bit less alkaline than mine as well

what is this climbing weed? Any ideas?

I don't recognise that as one of our weeds

 a hebe won't regrow through concrete or paving slabs. But you might have trouble levelling for a patio with stumps in the way

and lungwort is another old name, the spotted leaves are said to look like lungs so it cures lung disease

American bluebell? I didn't know that. Another source of confusion

gg, re your white buddleia. Bees do have colour preferences, something to do with wave lengths of colour. Don't ask, I'm no scientist

I had a row of thymes all in flower. The dark purple was covered in bees, the light mauve had a few and the white was bare.

I think that sums it up Dave

Though I've found hebes a bit iffy as well, they do grow back but keel over after a year or so
