I am officially demented.  We have a rookery across the road from our house.  This would be fine if we lived in the country but we don’t, it’s a small housing estate.  And they are driving me to distraction.  It’s like a scene from the birds – they sit on our roof and it sounds like they’re breaking in, but more importantly they eat all the bird food I put out for the robins and blue tits.

I’ve been in and out the garden for days scaring them away.  Slamming doors and windows whenever they’re on the bird feeders, hanging up wind chimes, I’ve even stuck  bubble wrap to various points of the fences hoping to scare them away I think it just gives them a comfy seat.  Please can someone tell me how to stop them eating everything in sight?

lawns

It’s hard to imagine at this time of year what the garden will look like when all the leaves are back on the trees, the shrubs are flowering, the grass is green and lush and the sun is shining.

However, you can be thinking about how to achieve this.

If you’re fed up with your grass never quite looking the way you want it, you keep buying lawn seed and fertiliser from the garden centre and you leave it in the shed not too sure what to do with it.  Why not come along this Saturday, March 14, to Suntrap Garden and find out the correct ways to look after your grass.  It’s a practical workshop showing you what to do and not do.   It starts at 10.00 am and finishes at 12 noon.  It only costs £6.00, less than yet another box of fertiliser.  If you’re interested give John a call on 0131 331 7283 or email him, johnsmith@btinternet.com.
