Thinking of the Edinburgh festival at this time of year - this one was the favourite last year (I think)....

Hedgehogs. Why can't they just share the hedge?

Sorry, I assumed (wrongly) that they were in pots!! That's why I suggested moving them around....

Maybe move them into a different position - swap some of those that are doing well with those that are not doing so well and see what happens. If we are going to get more warm weather and possibly a mild September you could still get flowers.

I would be inclined to give them a feed of tomato feed once a week - that's what I usually do at this time of year to keep my baskets and troughs going into autumn.

I got mine in a large Tescos in the pet aisle near the bird food - called The Right food for...hedgehogs - approved by wildlife hospitals etc. Says you can leave it out for a few days - looks like dried cat food but smells completely different. I'm sure chains like Peta at Home etc do it too.

Schools and colleges are out at the moment yet non motorized weeders and quality control analysis are in and neither thread has made any sense to me....I must be getting old

Sara4 - LOL - I can't believe you said that!! As I took the photo I actually bent my fingers slightly away from the camera in case it picked up the dirt!!

Well Dovefromabove I think you have got it! From what I read should be wonderful in autumn - I'll post a picture when it colours and forget about fruit, flowers, pruning just encourage it to spread!!

I have a spreader for my lawn and from one year to the next I might buy a different make of product or different product depending on my need and special offers eg just lawn feed or lawn feed and weed or mosskiller plus weed and feed....there is no way I can vary how much of the product is spread and I can't find any marking on the spreader to say how much is being spread per m. I just have to rely on all the companies being about the same overall.

On googling kiwi leaves they seem to be heart shaped. There are no hairs on the leaves or stems...could be another variety - I know nothing about kiwis.
