Swifts in decline

Posted: 02/07/2015 at 00:29
Sorry Joe your link doesn't work.

The swifts have been particularly noisy round the house the last three days. I wondered if the eggs had hatched. They mobbed me when I stood in the Velux window to watch them. Close enough to hear and feel them fly past

please help

Are you muddling home-made compost with shop-bought compost? They are not the same. It must have cost a fortune to lay down 1 foot of shop-bought compost.

Shop-bought compost contains very little fertilizer, not that such small sunflowers need fertilizer yet.

The main thing with sunflowers is to protect them from slugs.

Unless you give more details it is impossible to tell. Clever we are, but not mind readers.

A large expanse of grass to play on and somewhere to build a den. That's what children want! I don't think they care one jot about the planting.

Lucky you! When I was a child I was the official bat remover in our family as my Mother hated them in the bedroom.

Growing Tomatoes Up String

I tie farmers' plastic binder twine to the stem of the plant at bottom. Then tie it at the top, to a string running the length of the greenhouse , then wind the string round the stem as it grows.

PS David, they are called side shoots, not suckers!

Chopping in half with a pair of scissors is the kindest and quickest and cheapest method.
