Birds :(

THis poor little mite is struggling to survive. Everytime it gets a bit of a leaf on, a bloody bird comes and eats it. Not sure how many more times it can go through this before it gives up. I’ve ‘hidden’ it behind some irises for now to see if we can actually get a leaf instead of just the promise of a leaf.

    Sorry to hear that. Did you, by any chance, buy this in a box from Wilkinson’s? ;)

    Mail order from gardens & homes direct (thanks to Folia for telling me that, cos I could remember the mail order bit, but not the who from bit).
    I should have planted it out in the Autumn, but various things got in the way, so its fortunately still in a pot and hideable.
    The poor little thing is trying so hard though. Just a couple of days of being hidden and I have a leaf, so it may survive :)
