Who can be making these tunnels

Posted: 15/11/2016 at 19:20

I'd go for rats. Voles prefer deep cover grassy areas, plus they're too small to cause a network of tunnels under the locations you've described. Rats will do exactly what you've described, so brown rats will he the culprit. All the others are too small to do what you've described.

unknown rose pests

There's a few scale insects, the brown ones on the leaves but I can't enlarge the image enough to ID an insect.

Pruning roses

Joanna Obelixx's advise is spot on. It doesn't matter what type of rose it is reduced height is the main action right now. If you post a picture I'm sure we'll be able to help with type, and type is the determining factor in future pruning.

RHS says the Bayer fungus products may give some control Lester. However if the GC has sold infected plants that falls under consumer legislation and you're entitled to your money back.

Americans are for the first time in their history are fearful of the office of POTUS. Why? Well for the first in their history there was a real choice. So many generations have chosen between politically centre right and right wing conservative parties. They have never experienced a left and right as we have seen here. Their so called and much maligned ' Liberals' were not far removed from some Conservative Governments. Europeans have seen both sides of fences unimaginable in the USA. It's historically a young country which has always been Conservative with a big C. Liberalism is tantamount to communism in some people's opinions. So should we be surprised? Simply No. They just haven't grown up yet.

Gladiolus bulbs in winter

Posted: 11/11/2016 at 19:02

They're very different flowers, gladioli are usually large flowered showy blooms whereas gladiolus are smaller but equally pretty. If you google them and look at the images you'll immediately spot the difference. 

Garlic disease?

That looks like bruising rather than insects or diseases fixit. Plant it, should be fine.

Wandb are you talking about gladiolus or gladioli? Gladiolus are hardy in the UK gladioli aren't.

Leaf mould

Esspee if you've got a vac that chops up the leaves they'll automatically rot down more quickly. Bag or bin, personally I bag and chopped is ready in a year. Bins do take longer if you just leave them but if you cover you bins and turn the leaves every few months it does speed up the process. Keep them moist as well.
