Aym my tree has been in its pot since last year so whatever is in the pot has come from my garden. I am wondering if there are mites somewhere around. I don't think I will bother with it next year as it is proving to be a menace. I certainly think twice about bringing that one In!
I've removed all chocolate gifts so what will go for next? I would have thought mice would go for cushions etc to make a nice nest. Unless theyv'e made a hole somewhere it's definitely not mice. If I ever discover who the culprits are I'll let all you kind folk know! I have left some slug pellets in the bucket as suggested by Nut. Watch this space!
Thank you all for your suggestions. No there are no slime trails and no sign of a mouse or droppings. As I don't sleep too well my OH has suggested that I take a look in the conservatory in the middle of the night and see whats going on. Brrr a bit cold in the conservatory at night but I may just do that. In the meantime my cards and presents are in a plastic box in the house instead of being artfully placed around a real Christmas tree. Perhaps a plastic one will do next year!
Hazel, have done that! HopeI haven't bought the little beasties into the main house!!
Thank you for you suggestions everyone. Perhaps the tree should go outside again.
True Nut no droppings and no other signs of a mouse.
I had bought in my potted Christmas tree in from the garden into the conservatory and put all the presents and cards around it as you do. However I now find that cards and wrapping paper has been nibbled in the night and the situation is getting worse. We have looked for a mouse in the conservatory but have found no trace.
What on earth is the problem? Please someone help!
Chrissy your winter Jasmine looks great too. It really is a miracle plant the way it performs in winter Isn't it. Mine is doing OK but not quite so spectacular as yours. If the weather stays mild a sprig will look great on a Christmas table but a frost will set it back a bit.
lovely pics Chicky, must be really mild down in Surrey. Not too bad here in Cheshire but with this warm weather the slugs have enjoyed my Kale. I planted out about fourteen plants and now have one left. I don't suppose that will survive much longer unless the weather changes
Lovely pictures, great to see that some things seem determined to flower whatever the weather conditions. Guernsey your Poinsettia looks amazing. I've never managed to get one to flower the following year after purchase. I guess the different light conditions you get over there must help.
It seems to have righted itself all on it's own. Hurray!!
now how did that happen.
Oh dear! I've managed to upload my Mahonia photo but now it's upside down!
Any more winter flower photos from anyone, especially if you can upload them correctly.
