Help, are these plants ok for my small wildlife pond?

Posted: 06/05/2013 at 14:45

If I were you I would take the watercress out as soon as you can before it takes root and overwhelmes the pond completely.

If you leave it and then decide to remove it you will have great difficulty in getting rid of it all as every bit of stem left behind will grow into a new plant.

Yes, remove the flower heads and make sure you use those onions first when you harvest them, as they will not keep.

If it has been cut into brown stems, no it will not recover.  Give it the Heave Ho if you can.

Leggy mint - help!

Turn the plant upside down in your hand and remove the pot and I think you will find it needs a bigger pot as well as feeding and better light.

robinson greenhouse for sale

Advertise in the local paper.  Don't expect to get as much as you think they're worth.

Get the new owners to dismantle or you will have to pay for the inevitable broken glass.

Finding it hard to conceive of getting rid of two in situ greenhouses.  I think you will be flattened in the rush.

They do flower again, in time.  While you wait, keep buying new ones, cheaply if possible.  And yes, those are new roots.

best kind of bird feeder?

Posted: 04/05/2013 at 23:13

Blue tits need a feeder at this time of year, filled with crushed peanuts, otherwise they may take whole nuts back to their nestlings, which will kill them.

Robins and blackbirds prefer to feed off the ground. Mealworms for robins.  Raisins, apples for blackbirds.  Wrens mainly eat insects.

If the food is getting wet you might like to look at the feeders from CJWildfoods. 

Indoor seedlings not getting enough light

Morning Glory especially need pretty high temperatures before they go out, otherwise they sulk.

Blocking a wall

Sorry, you mentioned a cost of 3000 dollars so I thought you were abroad.

Have you thought of painting the wall as a first step to making it less obstrusive?

I'm not sure your screen idea sounds suitable.  A self-clinging plant seems the way to go.
