Feed your birds

Keep the birds well fed at this time of year as they're just starting to build nests and think about raising fledglings. It's a tough time of year for them, with little natural food around, so anything you can supply will be welcome: put out peanuts in mesh feeders and sunflower seeds for bluetits and finches like siskins, and fat balls for starlings, thrushes and woodpeckers.

Plant of the Week: Roses

Plant of the Week: Roses

‘A rose by any other name would smell as sweet’, said the Bard, and whatever name they go by roses undeniably take the prize for the most delicious scent in the garden. Perfume adds yet another dimension to a flower already blessed with perfect petals in a kaleidoscope of romantic colours.

Since it’s prime rose-planting time right now you’ve got the perfect excuse to add to your collection. From palest pink climber ‘Madame Alfred Carriere’ to swoon-inducing Bourbon rose ‘Madame Isaac Pereire’, there are dozens of roses which major on scent – so fill your garden with sweet, spicy perfume this summer!
