Calathea housepalnt

I have one of these, but not variegated.  I keep mine behind the curtain so it gets no direct light.  I take care that compost never dries out and always water with rainwater.  It's not as tall (5ft) as when I got it but I think that is because I can't give it the humid conditions it would like.  Mags

Indoor Hyacinths

Sorry - just reread your posting. I've never done that, but I would continue to water & feed them in the pot they are in. Let them dry off after all leaves have died.  Re pot into your outdoor pot in Sept or when you see outdoor hyacinth bulbs on sale in shops. Mags

I will keep mine watered with water containing  plant food for the next month then plant into the garden in March/April  where I want them next year..  I would expect them to flower every spring for several years to come.  Mags

porridge oats

Is it ok to put out dry porridge oats for the birds in my garden?  My neighbour says 'Yes' the birds love them.  I say 'No' as when the absorb moisture the birds will become dehydrated.  So ....... what should we do?   Feed or not feed with Porridge Oats. Thanks, Mags
