Problems using the website

Posted: 01/03/2017 at 13:12

I actually find the uploading of photos easier on the new forum, and as Topbird says you can enlarge them by opening them in a new tab. 


But as has been said, there are times when the site is unresponsive or jumpy on my iphone. 

Compost Heaps / Rats

Absolutely agree Verdun - it's helpful to know if what we've advised hasn't worked in some cases, and rewarding to know if we've been able to help

Does the GC have a website with a list of plants stocked?  That might give you a clue.

Compost Heaps / Rats

Posted: 01/03/2017 at 08:28

Verdun  In my experience in the past I've found cosy rats nests in compost heaps that have been covered over the winter - the interior of the heap has been quite dry. I stopped covering the heaps and stopped finding evidence of rats nesting in them. Then last autumn my MIL had new flooring fitted and gave us a piece of old carpet to cover our compost heaps, and we've just found evidence of rats overwintering in there  I won't be covering the heaps again - i shall let the winter weather keep the heaps damp in the middle, not dry and inviting.

Watched " the replacement". Muchly enjoyed.


See original post

 Yes, we enjoyed it too. 


We didn't watch Taboo, but the point of real fairy tales is that they are very dark indeed ... or they were before their Disneyfication.
