Prickly visiters.

I have grown strawberrys for many years on my allotment and always cover the bed with nets when the fruit start to redden. Last Friday a hedgehog had got tangled, rolled up in a ball in the net, so I cut it loose, put it in a safe place and released it. Sat and Sun morning exactly the same. Hedgehog tangled in net in the same place. Cut it free and released it. Today, surprise, surprise, hedgehog trapped again, only this time he had brought a mate. Cut them both free from the nets. Removed nets.

I have acquired some fish, blood and bone fertiliser. Can I sprinkle it around runner beans and other veg plants?

Thanks for your replies. Sowing again seems to be the best solution.

Are there any tips for getting 1 litre plastic hand sprayers to work. I always seem to have problems with mine. Just bought a new one. Does not work. Any help anyone.

I have been unable to buy Helichrysum (strawflower) seeds at any of my usual stores. Anyone had the same problem?

Started to regrow an amaryllis which I have had for three years which has flowered before. This time all that has grown are three leaves, no flower. What could be the reason for this? Thanks
