Hedgehog or Rat Hole??

Posted: 23/11/2017 at 20:19

Apart from anything else, hedgehogs don't dig tunnels or burrow.   It's a rat ... where there is one rat there are many more ... get rid of them.

Hedgehog or Rat Hole??

When I was a schoolgirl a friend's young brother died of Weil's disease.  


I've seen the damage to stored crops, buildings, fires caused by electrical shorts due to rat damage ...

I'd leave it alone for now ... if it is frost/wind damage at least the dead leaves will protect any shoots beneath them.  If it doesn't recover by next summer then it's more than cold damage.

It sounds as if some new growth has been damaged by frost.  I would leave it alone for now ... if it's not recovered by next summer it will be time to replace it.

Hello folks ... we're back from out trip to the city ... Black Thursday apparently  

I have a stylish new hairdo ... very now ... short at the sides (very short) and longer on top   
I also have some comfy new sort of slipper/shoes from Hotter http://www.hotter.com/gb/en/devotion-sl ... gJ7TfD_BwE 25% reduction 'cos of Black Thursday  Three new paperbacks from Waterstones 'cos I couldn't resist them  and a gorgeous warm scarf/shawl sort of a thing from Accessorize (sort of navy paisley with a bit of silver thread). 


OH is cooking supper and I'm on the sofa snuggled into my new shawl with a G&T and listening to Abba and we've just had a text from our beloved niece saying that she's got an A* in her Physics pre Mock (whoever heard of 'pre Mocks???)   


It's been a lovely day ... I raised a glass to you Pdoc and there's a G&T here for you whenever you want  ((hugs))

Morning BL 


Just a bit snuffly and sneezy really ... it hasn't really 'developed'. 


It's this gallery https://www.nua.ac.uk/thegallery/ ... it's part of the art school and shows all sorts of international artists ... absolutely wonderful 

HELP! My Petra Croton is dying :/

Hi   This is a UK based forum with a few members in NW Europe and a few other places so we have little knowledge of whether your croton would be better outside or not.


This website gives some pretty comprehensive advice

Good luck
