I think they are owned/connected with T&M.

I'm curious

They have turned round to either face the sun or face away from the sun.

Have you ever looked at a field of sunflowers with every sunflower facing the sun?

Dandelions come out according to the time and sunshine.  And one of the family is called Jack Lies A'Bed because it doesn't open until 12 o'clock.

Also grows on poor soil.

What is this?

Good for chickens when crushed.

IMO windchimes are a thing of awfulness if you have to live next door to them.  Maybe that's just me!

Also if your fig has been in the same pot for 'a few years' it will be in need of a re-pot and/or feed.  Do not just bury the pot.

Alison, if you have figs bigger than a pea and recognisably figs, you should remove them, they will come to nothing if you are in the UK.  Look closely at them and you will see they are not perfect.

The figs that will develop and ripen later this summer are at the top of the branches, and are as yet small.

Learn to cook and pick them off as fast as you can and use them.

(What does this mean?)

The only other way, I have found is flyspray in cans. Please do not be lazy and use chemicals.

Flyspray in cans ??  A chemical, surely?

Most potatoes will do this.  When they grow in the warm weather they are called volunteers, and they are a pest!

Frankly with all the rain we've had the sooty mould would have washed off if it was going to.

The introduction of insects is impractical for most gardeners. They are either there or not and probably not at this time of year.

If you really want to get rid of it - it will harm the bay - you will have to take more drastic action.  But if the bush is small and the weather sunny, you can sit down and wipe off the critters on the undersides of the leaves with warm water and washing up liquid.

It all depends on whether you are a chemical-user or not.
