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.

I've only seen Gt Spotteds in this garden very occasionally. I miss seeing them in the gardens where I used to work - they would bring their youngsters to the bird feeders most days.

Can anyone name this plant?

It looks to me like a rather tangled and venerable Clematis Montana. When we see the flowers we'll probably be able to make a good stab at which one. 


After it's flowered this spring we'll help you to give it a good seeing to so it's a bit more controlled and is able to look it's best.
