Do you have a niche area of interest that you are good at Nic10. Like roses/ferns/succulents or mushrooms!

It might not be a bad idea to start with that and expand from there.

It all depends on the temperature and what worms. You have the red wriggler (Eisenia fetida)

Ideal temp would be 15-26 degrees C.

they will tolerate temperatures 4-32 degrees C .

I have had my worm bins frozen solid and they survived without harm. 

Are you able to get a photo of your worm bin please BitterKnitter.

That is one for the envy thread Dave.

star gaze lily. I think you might have a few more nights with the light from the new lamp posts. They are not that affective during the day.

Hello pinkpeony.

Sorry to here about your honey fungus. Its a awful thing to have.

I would avoid replanting in the infected site for at least 12 months to starve the fungus.

Soil sterilisation is a option but approved products are only used in a commercial situation. It will control the disease but i imagine it will be expensive.

Sparrowhawk dilemma

Posted: 20/11/2014 at 10:21

I think Welshonion has a point when he says

"Do not believe everything the RSPB says " 

If the RSPB state that every thing is hunky dory then i think that there would be no money for the RSPB. 

Lyn. "Once you have children you've buggered up the planet" Really! 

If people stopped having children then there would be no one around to see or care about what this change might have.  Its a no win situation. 

Its all down to Mother Nature and our teaching to our children about a symbiotic relationship with nature.

punkdoc. Go to youtube or just use your search engine. Then right click on the title and you should get a drop down menu with the option to copy link address. 

When you want to place it into a thread just paste it in and then hold the right click button down and drag it over the title and it should highlight it. 

After that press the chain link (the unbroken icon 2 to the left of the tree icon) above and paste the title into the top box shown (link URL). press the enter button shown and that should be it. No need to fill in the title.

No need Welshonion. I never read it that way and thought it was a appropriate reply.

quince trees

Posted: 19/11/2014 at 17:26

 Chives, garlic, comfrey, alyssum, dill, nasturtium, marigold, borage and chamomile.

They also work well with forsythia, day lilies, and irises. Planting these around the quince will actually help both plants to grow better and not stealing resources from the other orchard trees.
