Bird Seed Problems
Hope you've all recovered from the Thunder Storms - Garden seems to appreciate it!
OK - the only place I can put my bird feeders is near the end of the garden and the seed gets spilt on the ground and then I have a huge (ok I exaggerate) field of growing bird seeds that overwhelm everything else I have tried to plant there. As I am disabled I struggle to clear it up daily and by the time I persuade a mate to help me we end up digging huge clumps of sprouting (rotting) bird seed off the top of the flowerbed.
Has anyone got any advice for me please? I suppose I want some advice as to what I can plant there that will withstand the falling sprouting seeds and take over the flowerbed leaving no room for the seeds? Something pretty as well? Maybe some sort of flowering shrub????
Help! I've tried buying things that 'catch' the falling seed but the birds aren't very good at aiming at these!
I await your responses with bated breath! xxx
