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.
