I think my dead hedgehog was a juvenile. No idea how it died, or what killed it, but birds have been scavenging. I will leave it where it is and let nature take it's course. Useful calories, as Chris Packham might say.
Trimmed wild hedge for friend today, which was encroaching on driveway. Then replanted new shrubs in a new border which had been heeled in temporarily. Also planted 2 apple trees in wildflower meadow to be.
Soil very dry and hard to dig now.
Possible idea for the flower bed I cleared yesterday is to transplant the roses currently growing where my new terrace will be. Not necessarily a good time to do it but , with lots of watering it should be possible. Has anyone moved a rose at this time of year? Any tips and tricks for success?
