Where can I get Rabbit 'waste'?

My colleague used to keep a specialist type of cavie called Skinny pigs - they're hairless and have to live indoors with their owners

Guinea pig poo is absolutely the best for adding to compost heaps.  When I worked a colleague kept show cavies - every week she would bring me a bin bag half full of the contents of their runs - my compost was brilliant and was 'made' very quickly.

What do you use it for?

Streetlife?  All sorts of things - local clubs and societies use it as a notice board.  It has a Lost & Found section, ours has rehomed dogs, cats and an engagement ring recently.  We advertised a bike in need of lots of refurbishment and a grandfather came and took it home to do it up for his grandson.  It's also a way of finding recommended local tradesmen.  The council advertise planning applications in our area and the community police use it to let us know what they're up to in the area.

It's a national website, but divided into small areas, like villages or small areas of postcode.  Absolutely brilliant.

Try your local  - it's a community website which facilitates people passing on things they don't need etc.

Maybe ask if you can put a card up at a local pet shop or vet's practice?

Rose hips

The main purpose of dead-heading is to encourage repeat flowering roses to produce more blooms. 

At this time of year that's unlikely to happen, so I would leave the hips on the bush to feed the birds in the winter

Climber needed for a very narrow sunny spot - is it really possible?

I think that a plant and possibly trellis there is going to give an intruder something to get a toe-hold in rather than deter him/her. 

I think a plain wall is more of a barrier/deterrent if there isn't room for something with really spikey thorns like pyracantha.

Veg patch raked over and two double rows of broad beans Aquadulce Claudia sown and covered with chicken wire to stop any visiting cats from scratching them up.  Mind you, the neighbour's cats haven't been around much lately   Famous last words?

I've also planted some Rip van Winkle daffodil bulbs - they're very similar to some that were in the vegetable garden at the farm when I was a child and I'm very fond of their dishevelled appearance
