Ladybirds gather at this time of year, it's the start of the hibernation process. Once they find a suitable place to hibernate, they all migrate to that spot. It's a team effort to find a good spot, it's an example of group co-operation to benefit the species.

Anyone know what this is please?

It's NOT echeveria as others have said, I blew up your picture on photoshop and my first ID was correct.

help please as regards my dog

I had spaniels and the side of the mouth right at the back where the lips meet, inject it slowly. Once they get used to it the dog will be no trouble especially if there is a treat afterwards. Dogs will lick their lips furiously when taking liquid down but as I say once they realize it's a game with a treat at the end they love it.

dog bite,anyone know for sure?

Need help identifying (and saving) this small plant

Posted: 15/10/2014 at 10:49

It could be one of the tradescantia's, one of the indoor varieties. It certainly rings a bell, but for the life of me I can't remember at the moment. I seem to remember having one like this, but it was years ago.

Anyone know what this is please?

I think nut you should look at the website below for the winter 2014/15.

Dryer water

Water via a water softener contains salt in some cases. Too much salt is bad for many plants except those who like coastal conditions. I can only assume the advice given too you about water from a dryer is based on the fact man made chemical residues, which adheres to clothes even after rinsing, will be bad for your plants.

The accepted wisdom is to rely on rain water for some plants, if not all. Tap water still contains traces of fluoride in many area's and trace amounts of other chemicals used in treating water supplies.
