Frank, the trick to encouraging your bird to leave is to wait till dusk and put a light outside to which it should fly. I did this when a bird was trapped in my house, and no amount of chasing it towards open windows worked. The light trick worked immediately.

Have just seen the results of our Plant Sale... best since 2007. Our members are really supporting us well. 

Thanks Gg for the pictures. The orange tulips are Abu Hassan, which I have wanted to grow for some time. shall use them again. Rest of garden is looking a little immature after lots of renovations.  7 weeks to opening.

Opening on 14 June, DD. i have replanted large parts of the garden, so I have no real idea what it will look like.

Anyone know any good trees that like very wet ground??

There are some fine specimens of Met.Seq. in this country, with lovely fissured/twisted bark and fresh green foliage, renewed each year as is unusually deciduous. Good overall shape, but give it plenty of room as no-one knows how large it will grow in the Uk, as there are no mature specimens yet... it having been thought to be extinct and then rediscovered in China in the 1940s.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
