I must have planted 3 clumps too shallow as no flowers 2 consecutive years - do i dig them up now, or at bulb planting time? I suspect now would be easier, dont know if i will be able to find them when the foliage has gone.

Saw him again this morning for about 5 mins, quite a bit closer so i saw how small they are actually, i dont think he will be a problem unless he is cornered. 

I guess he lives close or has moved into my garden.  Hope he can catch lots of short tailed voles, plenty about.

Ok.  She is free range in the garden, and stoats can go for prey larger than themselves, but a confrontation is extremely unlikely.  He was probably just passing through. 

it was very enjoyable.  He peaked over a wall, then jumped down from it, so i got a very good view.

Saw a stoat in the garden this evening....started wondering if the dog is safe.  I googled it, says an average dog could be bitten, but not hurt by a stoat.  She not an average size though - tiny dog.  What do you think?

I fenced all mine, then added rabbit proof wire and they still get in.  Mr Yodel leaves the gate open.  The neighbours catch the wire sometimes with their strimmer. they just  wait on the borders for a breach to occur!

if you are in a very rabbity area its hard to be rabbit free all the time.

I was going to ask that too. 

I have moles and (a lot more) short tailed voles.  I dont mind them too much, we get owls hunting them.

Thanks all.  I have fruit bushes.  J artichokes might be good, not sure what i would do with globe. I dont know either of those salads, will look up.  Got chives and mint.  Love chives as flowers too, so i have them all over the place. 

cardoon sounds exciting, they are huge arent they?  never seen them for sale though.
