Poinsettias, I have won them in raffles and given them back! Photinia "Red Robin'.

Long Grass

Posted: 22/11/2015 at 05:57
Long grass should ideally be cut in perhaps July/August. When the seeds of wild flowers have matured and fallen. If you are going for a wild-flower area the grass should be raked off so the fertility of the patch is not increased.

If you go for the 'Well I told you so' option, be aware as they are not gardeners, they will blame you not the aspect. And what about the time and energy you waste.

Why not attach a ring to the wall and let them practice goal scoring!

If it's as shaded as you say it's pretty well impossible. Is it a gardener who suggested it?

Water Butt Cleaning

Snap, DyersEnd. The water in a couple of the butts is several year's old, although fresh has also been added. Still beautifully clear and non-smelly.

The secret is to keep it well-covered at all times.

If you want to scrub a butt, empty and put on its side then it's easy.

Blackcurrants are more nutritionally valuable and easier all round.

What bird of prey would attack a skein of geese?

Posted: 28/10/2015 at 10:20
We have red kites over the house every day and they are pretty light-weight. Not sure they would attack anything; they are carrion-eaters like buzzards; except in the breeding season.

If you want to report anything such as joe47's dead peregrines or bird sightings there will always be a local wildlife group or bird blog in your area.
