Garden Moles

Well, if the golf club are happy then that sounds great!  Good luck!

I think crab apples (malus) would work nicely

We had a similar query not long ago (but for SW France) - there were several suggestions made here http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/garden-design/tree-recommendations-for-my-site-please/621496.html but certainly malus was considered suitable, and could certainly be kept to the height you want.  If crab apples are happy in your area then I'd go for it!  Sounds a lovely idea

You will need evidence that it was your product that worked and not that the moles have packed up and moved elsewhere when food supplies in your garden were exhausted or conditions change - that's what they tend to do. 

Have you done trials in other gardens/parks/fields?

Plant/weed ID please

One or the other - just hoe them out before they get any bigger.  The ones in the lawn can be mowed.

Sorry to hear we have some more poorly ones ((hugs)) get well soon.  Well, not 20C here, but 19.1C so I won't grumble

I've not been outside much, I've been working on Pa's eulogy - but OH hung 2 loads of washing out and got it in (folded and dry) so we've really appreciated the sunshine

ID? Weed or plant

Long ID threads can be very confusing

Geranium "Mayflower" - help please!

Posted: 07/04/2015 at 11:50

Hi Sarah - I think the geraniums you're referring to are the tender plants which should really be called Pelargoniums.

The geranium 'Mayflower'  that AnniD was talking about is a perennial hardy geranium which is a different type of plant and grows outside all year round in the UK.

At one time there was a decision that everyone would call the tender ones Pelargoniums, but garden centres seem to have 'chickened out' for some reason.  Daft of them 'cos it's just causing confusion.
