I am considering re stocking my raspberries as they are a few years old. It has been suggested, because I am knocking on a bit, that I should grow the dwarf  variety, as they are very low maintenance. Has anyone tried them,and are they worth growing? Ruby beauty has been suggested

Thanks for all the replies.  Goodness me there are some real dahlia lovers out there.

My dahlias are 3/4years old, and have produced many large tubers, making them difficult to store in trays etc.  Should try to separate them now or wait until spring

many thanks for the replies.  They are very useful.  We did have two large hedges removed. One privet and one leylandi,these were replaced by fencing with no acccess,  but there is still a large hawthorne hedge between our garden and the fields at the bottom.  We do get plenty of wild life in the garden, unfortunately at the moment several rats are paying us a visit and stealing the bird food.  They have probably been driven from their habitat, as the pond in the pond in the wood below us has flooded. May try the hedgehog rescue people when spring arrives. Once again thanks for your interest.

For years we had the pleasure of a resident family of hedge hogs. Sadly we havent seen any for the past 2 years or so.  I know there is a big decline in the hedge hog population, but our garden is as "hedgehog friendly" as we can posssibly make it. We live alongside a small copse, and have a large hawthorn hedge separating us from the fields at the rear. This is trimmed once a year and the clippings left in situ. to form a welcoming habitat for hedgehogs.  A flock of geese live in the field immediately behind us but I can"t see that would affect hedgehogs. Is there anything else I could do to encourage the hedgehogs back?
