Water Butts STINK!

Posted: 12/10/2014 at 13:16

I get from 6 to 20 pigeons on my roof and I presumed the smell coming from my newly installed water butt was because of their droppings. I thought bird poop was a fertilizer so have been watering my rhodos and pieris with this water and they seem to be thriving. If I carry on doing this will it become detrimental in the long run do you think?

Talkback: Plants for bees

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:28
I have a rowan tree which this year put on a lot of its tiny flowers. Bees were swarming all over...every and all day! Also bumble bees loved my rhododendrons and my geraniums and I have 7 penstemon plants just coming into bud, ready to take over until second flush of geraniums. I have seen more bees this year than ever before.We have a grand 9ft high 60ft long privet hedge which is humming and chirruping with wildlife..so dont get rid of your hedge for a wall.
