OK, who's got it?

The problem with a lot of sheds is that from the outside, you can unscrew the hinges

I'm not a normally suspicious person, but neighbours warned me that garden furniture can be 'nicked' around here. So both of the benches are discreetly chained and padlocked to concrete fence posts

Those thieves definitely need cutting down to size. The owner should get a large dog to scarify potential thieves.

Does your Shed have a Name ??

Barbara, would you care to give us the recipe?

Onions - Autumn planting

Posted: 20/08/2014 at 20:25

For about £5 or £6 you could get 125 litre bags of general compost from B&Q and other outlets. I was a bit disappointed with the Red Baron onions I planted last Autumn; they didn't grow very large. I think I will try growing from seed, not sets next time.

Clear pond please !!

Hi Topbird, I have 2 medium Daleks and 1 large one (only got it a few weeks ago). I don't have bases for them, but they are situated in a sunny position on DPC, covered with gravel. In 10 years or so have never had problems with rats. The best way to deter rats is to situate bins near a high traffic area in your garden, the rats don't like that. So, for example, all my bins are just next to where I park the car, and on the way to the wood and kindling store. Also I empty kitchen waste into the bin at least once a day also garden waste. There is just too much activity for them to feel safe.

You could always hit the side of your bin with a bamboo cane every time you pass by
