i have spoken to my neighbour and told him its illegal to destroy nests....he said "its my property and therefore i can do what i like" i wouldnt mind but he has a huge avery in his garden!!!! by the way he has a weaver bird which was in the avery for months making beautiful nests which looked like delicate knitted pots, he has now put him in a cage because he was chasing the finches, this bird is now alone and so sad!! argh im so angry with him, he just dont care!!!!!

So do you now intend to follow this through and make a complaint?

I don't have iplayer. Beechgrove sounds like a great program.  I wish there were more gardening programs on Sky , there used to be at one time. Agree with lavenderlass, an extension to GW would be great.

If you have got Sky you can pick up Beechgrove-i- player is on the BBC website-why can't you get it?

Yes-anything that is in the shop- is better in the ground than in the shop-but there is plenty of time.

Am a bit confused about this -did you mean to spray/kill the lawn?

Azalea wilting and going brown - help!

The orange spheres are slow release fertilizer.

It may have just died from being too wet and surrounded by wet soggy compost-what you should have done it teased the roots out of the rootball if they were tightly matted and they would have found there way out.

That is my diagnosis anyway-see what others say
