Talkback: Winter shelter for wildlife

Posted: 11/11/2012 at 18:14
Your little mouse is so cute Kate. I have never had them in the house but I have caught a few in the greenhouse in humane traps, this was back in the spring. My husband then has the job of taking them to the common and letting them go. The spiders have been in, I just catch then in a jar and take them outside and let them go. Some have been quite large.

Brilliant programme Monty and so nice to see Nigel on the road to recovery. Looking forward to seeing you again in 2013.

autumn colour

Oh happymarion they are just beautiful. I went to the Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh in September. The weather was just so wet and horrid but the colours were still so amazing.

 We didn't get to see all the gardens because of the wet weather, but what we did see was just lovely. We are in Scotland again in March so hopefully the weather will be kinder.

Hydroponic Systems.

I'm thinking of using a Hydroponic system next season in the greenhouse. Can anyone tell me if you can reuse the clay balls that are used in some of these systems. I saw a hydroponic system in use in Holland this year and it was just amazing to see, so thought I would give it a go.

Talkback: Ash tree dieback

Posted: 06/11/2012 at 17:46
I think it is so sad about these lovely trees and that the powers that be could have done something a long time ago. Had they done so, we would not be in this mess now. How long though are they going to keep the importation of Ash trees ban in place, not long enough is my guess.

christmas is coming!

I wish I could have a square garden as mine is like a triangle, it goes to a point. Even so, it is still packed with plants mainly in pots. I not only get to have a wish list for Christmas but my birthday is just before Christmas so | get to have another list.

What's for tea?

We have just eaten a lovely beef stew with dumplings, just what you need on a chilly autumn day.

A lot of garden centres sell parafin too in cans.

Where is Nigel?

How relieved Monty and his family must be to know Nigel is on the road to recovery. I know what it is like to have your dor poorly, mine was diabetic so she was at the vets all the time. Lovely to see Nigel, thank you Monty for letting us know.
