The sales were in their last week, and I had been given a voucher for Christmas, so a visit to the garden centre was in order.
The seeds were half price so I grabbed a handful of packets.
I got honesty, poached eggs, rudbeckia, cowslip, wild primrose, phacelia, and verbena for my wildlife garden.
I have a bee nest box to put out and I’ll probably sow some of these seeds nearby for them.
There was 20% off wild bird things. I grabbed this Gardman nyjer seed feeder to replace my current one. The current one has slits and sometimes the goldfinches have a spot of bother getting the seeds out. The new one has holes, an anti bacterial coating, and will be an even easier clean.
It’s all filled up and good to go!
I put it outside on the 14th and yesterday it had it’s first visit, that I saw anyway. Two goldfinchs had a long tea break nibble, and seemed to have no problem at all getting the seeds out.
