Can you put them outside in the sunshine during the day and bring them in at night?

Bee watering hole

I think it's feasible - bigger would be better, but that would be fine - and at that size you need have no fears for child other than it will become obsessed with wildlife and grow into Chris Packham No. 2 - which can only be a good thing

Grevillea juniperina- HELP!!!

Posted: 18/04/2015 at 06:59

It's not a plant that I grow - I don't think it's hardy enough for my garden - but this site gives some  information on pruning etc http://www.homelife.com.au/gardening/plant+tool/grevilleas,5348,

I hope that's helpful

Bee watering hole

I think a bog garden container will be lovely - we watch bees, wasps and butterflies landing on the pebbles at the edge of our pond to take a drink - endlessly fascinating

I agree, beech or hornbeam would be lovely there - or holly

But yes, you'll have to replenish the soil first.

Can I divide watermelon seedlings?

Never having grown watermelons I've no idea how much they'll dislike it, but I'd do it anyway - growing so closely together will impair their growth so I'd go ahead, do it quickly and gently - I reckon they'll be fine

Lull it into a false sense of security then fell it with a scissor kick!

Hedgehog or rats

Well, you'll move him out and you might drown his offspring - but if he's found somewhere nearby that provides him with food, he'll stay around - he'll just find somewhere else to live.  I think I'd leave the hole alone and show it to the rat man/woman when they come to lay the baits - you'll give them a chance to identify the rats' usual 'rat runs'etc.

Good luck
