Hi carol

Go to BTO website and type in nestboxes, or watch Gardeners World this friday on bbc2 at 8.00pm. The best time to put one out is now so the birds get used to it by the spring.

Best of luck

Two years is not very long if you want to create a flower meadom ( or boarder ). It could take several years be patient and you will reap the rewards.

Advice re: building a wire trellis for wisteria

I'm Sorry to pore cold water on your idea,but positioning your wisteria North to Northeast is the worst positioning that you could place it in. Wisteria needs as much  sunlight and heat as possible, it will not flower very well either. Please look up planting advise before you continue with your venture.

I planted a wisteria a few years ago, first year they put on roots, second year they put on plant growth, third year it flowered,put only very few flowers, so the four year I fed it from the beginning of march on seaweed fertiliser and I had over a hundred flowers.

thank you for your replies, but I do know a little about them, we have some in the flood plains in Oxford, so I know they love the moisture.
The reason for planting in a pot is that I have not prepared the natural flower bed for them, I have also planted a flower meadow mat (with seeds sewn into squares on the mat). Due to ill health I have not been able to prepare the natural flower bed.

Hi all, This is my first entry, so here goes. Just as the weather looked as if it was warming up, the wind is back in the NNE again, never mind I don't think it will be long now, before we get better weather !!!! I hope. The reason for this new thread is, can anyone inform me on anything to do with Fritillaries (Snakes head). As I've grown a dozen in a pot this year, and several of them have double heads, one of them is in flower, and the rest have buds on them. So I am taking photo's every two or three days. Any infomation would be gratefully received, no matter how small. Good Gardening Terry 2

Hi all, This is my first entry, so here goes. How rare are double headed Fritillaries (Snakes heads). I ask this question as last autumn I planted about a dozen in a pot, and this week I noticed that one of the plants has two flower heads on it.
