The answer, get ready! It's really big, it's a huge tip!
Yes, that's right!
Why? Well when these lovely birds come to visit not only do they grab the odd Cherry Tomato or something else, but they clean up unwanted pests too!
Please encourage birds and wildlife to come to your garden, even a potted vegetable garden.
In summer I have Geckos come to visit also and they do a great job keeping the ant population down.
Why, would I love that?
Well, ants love to farm Aphids and Scale and these blighters can ruin crops.
I have had them in the past kill a whole Parsley plant over about a week!
Also lizards will clean up snails.
If you have a few places for the lizards to hide like a few rocks etc they will make it their home!
My friend in Philippines told me they don't have fruit fly because the lizards gobble them all up! Cool ay?
Anyway, if you don't have birds visiting your garden yet make a little bird bath or buy one from the store.
Once they know it's safe they will return often.
Until the next blog post!
Happy Gardening Marty
PS: Put the bird bath up high away from Cats!
