Lots of legs, no ID

I'd go with centipedes of one sort or another - they moult their skins several times before they get to adulthood, then the adults moult about once a year.

Advice please

I read somewhere that a certain amount of 'padding' in the pertinent areas helps guard against broken hips etc as we get older ....... I remember that and quote it often

Hyacynths and vegetables

Posted: 08/03/2016 at 15:44

Hi Space Veggie and welcome

The hyacinths won't affect your veg at all and the veg will be quite safe to eat - however what I'd do is as soon as the hyacinths blooms start to go over is I'd dig them up with as much soil as possible and replant them where they can remain.

Alternatively if you've not got somewhere permanent ready for them yet, you could put them in containers, feed them and look after them until the leaves die down then you can dry the bulbs off until the autumn when you can plant them in their permanent position

Gardening Book

Alan Titchmarsh's Complete Book of Gardening is a good 'gardening bible' - covers everything from the basics to more advanced stuff, and as far as I've been able to tell, the advice is totally reliable and is put over in an easily accessible way.
