Now this caught my eye on the news up in Cannock today, no reason to discriminate against odd shaped veg in my opinion. All shaped veg and fruit are accepted at gardenchief towers. Most home grown garden veg isn’t up to supermarket shape standards, and more the better for it.
Here in Cannock us gardeners are have a rest but there is a hard frost today and the next few days look like being the same, so what about the birds?
Providing food for birds is one of the most helpful things you can do for your garden visitors, so long as you are thoughtful with your feeding.
The RSPB and the British Trust for Ornithology both suggest feeding birds all year round.
However, it is suggested that feeding birds during the colder months should be a priority.
Dawn and dusk are the key
Gardenchief are proud to have been accepted into the The Gardeners Guild.
The Gardeners Guild is a national trade network that gives self-employed gardeners practical support by arranging access to services that are not normally available to individual gardeners. Our membership has come to include tree surgeons, landscapers and garden designers who also offer garden and grounds maintenance as part of their services.
Only gardeners with a nationally recognised horticultural qualification can join. Qualified gardeners have been trained and assessed to a nationally recognised standard in their chosen field of horticulture.
All this week i’ve been up Tixall, Stafford and Cannock Chase doing more training. This time trying to gain more City and Guilds certification. It’s the last day tomorrow, i’ve really enjoyed it, been with a great bunch of lads.
Thanks must go to Martin of Ian morgan Arb for excellent training, professional, curteous and very knowledgable.
Here’s hoping to pass my assesment next Tuesday!
EDIT: I did indeed pass, i now have my CS30/31 accreditation.
