Many thanks Verdun, the tender ones would they survive in Oxfordshire or what protection is needed as we don't have a greenhouse

I have been bitten by the salvia bug and last year bought a couple of hot lips that provided months of colour and brought in loads of insects.

I am considering getting the Amistad and Involucrata and any advise on a shorter variety for the front of the borders would be appreciated.

Sat here in the office and my colleague who has also spotted them has said that it looks almost spot on!! Although ours from memory seemed whiter - hopefully on next filling up the feeder they visit us again and we will be taking the phone to catch a picture......

Been searching the internet and the closest I can get is the Azure Tit

I cant imagine it could be as they are found so faraway.

 My Christmas Poinsettia is still going strong. Will I be able to re-pot it and during summer keep outside?

Dove, not a wagtail but as dainty where their feathers are black the birds I saw were white and slate grey.
