Hi its only growing under the holly tree no dahlia at that end... I have pulled up what came up this time. The last time it was a clump really tough to get out - I don't think I got the root

Hi the idea of squirrel baffles maybe the solution...

We are in Oxfordshire near to farm land and they are double the jackdaw size that we have visit and they have a long horn coloured beak. The carrion crows live in the trees around 2 miles away and don't come near the garden.

I chased them off around an hour ago and as soon as they come back will take a picture and post it.

I have suet balls and seed feeders

Our bird table is being frequently visited by Ravens who slide down the metal hooks and lift off the feeders.

Once on the floor they clear out the feeders pretty quickly, upto 8 to 10 visit the feeder at one time chasing off the sparrows and starlings

Has anyone else experienced this and if so any ideas how to keep them off?

Identification Please

Hi Peanuts3 it has a waxy feel to the leaf, think foxgloves have a furry texture?

Hi just found this at the back of the border - can anyone advise what it could be, if you brush the leaf it has quite a strong scent...

I have a beautiful 2 year old canna, when I prepare to over winter it this year can it be split as the roots are now quite large in the pot
