How to control earthworms?

Hedgehogs need a large area - they can roam up to 2 kilometres a night - it would be cruel to keep one in an enclosed garden.

We used to live in a city centre terrace and we had a hedgehog visiting regularly.  The gardens need to be connected so the hedgehogs can roam - take a look here

How to control earthworms?

The reason you're getting a lot of casts on the lawn at the moment is because the worms are nearer the surface due to the wet weather and it indicates that your lawn is becoming waterlogged. 

Thorough scarifying and aeration of the lawn will help drainage and the worms will be able to move deeper in the soil which is where they prefer to be.  Cooler weather will also encourage them to move downwards. 

This is only a temporary problem and there is no need to reduce their numbers - doing so would have an impact on the health of your lawn.

David58 has copied/cut and pasted some of Monty's writing on honey fungus in the Guardian years ago word for word! 

And without attribution - wonder if Monty and the Guardian will take legal action re copyright!
