Thankyou for your help.

The Sambucas hasnt ever flowered or had berries. Its growing fast this year though.

The yellow 'whateveritis'  began flowering last week and will continue right to the end of Autumn.

This is growing outside a small cafe in south Netherlands. I'd like to know what it is please if you know it.

Thankyou all for the advice.

I've removed and given away about half of them and have filled in the gaps with bedding plants. Not much sign of the leaves dying back yet but at least there are splashes of colour here and there.

 Indeed They are in a north facing bed, never have a glimmer of sunshine and have filled the place.

Sparrows definately do the damge in our garden, They begin with yellow flowers and then move on to pink as a second choice but they also like blue

We have a bird feeder and enjoy seeing the birds so a downside to that.

Good Evening FORKERS

Went to a local nursery and discovered they are selling plug plants for only a few pence so bought some geraniums and begonias, tiny little things which are going to be bea-u-ti-ful  Also bought three Fuschias and all have been potted up.

Planted some Hollyhocks and some blue things which I don't know the name of. Planted some trailing tomatoes into baskets but am keeping them inside the greenhouse. Moved some Snowdrops.

Looked at the Frogs in the ponds and the loads of Frogspawn. I like Frogs Last year we have a total of two snails so am sure Frogs are very beneficial. 

Light showers and warm sunshine today. It feels like Spring
