Annuals do not require much feeding. Sounds like you are going for over-kill with them!
Whole peanuts are deadly for nestlings. The parents take them back for the youngsters and they are too big for them to swallow.
Caterpillars and other treats are far more tempting at the moment. Mealworms will attract robins and blackbirds, which like to feed on the ground.
Thanks folks. Sadly I don't think they will ever meet again!
Flowers mean they are fertile, but you probably need more than one variety for pollination.
They are doing their best, give them a helping hand by buying a bush of a different variety.
Oh dear! Naked gardening day was next to Camera Corner. Now they are apart. It made me smile every time I saw it.
Bob Flowerdew on GQT was very dismissive of their cropping ability. Big plant, small crop.
It is a bit early for them to be going yellow, naturally. One year mine collapsed with fungus disease. It's not that is it?
You can tell if they have enough/too much water when beads of water appear along the edges of the leaves.
Tomatoes are a plant that can be grown hydroponically so I would think it is difficult to over-water, but easy to wash all the nutrients out of the grow-bag.
Privet in flower attracts a huge number of butterflies.
I love welsh poppies; they seed themselves in unexpected places and never become a nuisance.
