Gardeners World - not back for 4 weeks!

I was wondering the same 'seaside', if all these folks on here have sent points of view a complaint, has anyone had a reply from them? I haven't.

buried snails

Oh no I don't tie the bag up, they'd never get out! I just want them to live at the council tip and not in my garden!

Oh wintersong how could you!

Mmmm! Thanks wintersong for that bit of knowledge! Trouble is I don't like destroying snails and slugs by squashing. Anyone got a kind way of disposing of them? I bagged some up the other day and put them in the dustbin sack just before they were collected. Plenty of waste matter for them to get their teeth into up at the dump! I'm a softie at heart you see.

buried snails

I keep finding snails half buried in the garden. At first I ignored them thinking that they were empty shells left by the birds, until I lifted one the other day and found a nice fat snail attached to a big mass of white eggs! It was obviously in the middle of laying her brood in the soil of one of my pots! So I am now going round the garden looking as closely as possible for more doing the same. Now I'm all for procreation... but I think there are enough snails around in my garden this year without making more!

HOYA - WAX FLOWER

I've had one for years but only as an indoor plant. Mine came from an Aunt who had the original in a sunny conservatory, but not sure how they would do outside.

Now that we've had a warm few days my tiny seedlings are growing fast. Must pot them on and keep them away from the hundreds of snails.

Alliums

Like most bulbs, I'd leave them to die down naturally so that the goodness goes back into the bulb. Also a good feed is what I give mine to strengthen them after all their hard work flowering.

I hope the powers that be take notice of your suggestion Hollie-Hock.

Well done!

What a good idea. I've often thought about that but never asked. Maybe there is a way that we have not found out about. Hope someone can help.

Mice

We found a dead mouse floating in the water butt one day last week. Thought the cat may have flicked it in from the flat roof nearby, But the next day there was another one. Do you think they run along the gutter and fall in or are they practicing the crawl ready for the Olympics?
