Love the horses chicky. I'll bump the thread up.  Just so long as verdun doesn't put his fantasy snake on. I thought the real one I saw at Bressingham was bad enough. I hate snakes.

I would say a hedgehog that has been picking up seeds. I know they are supposed to eat slugs and worms, but our hedgehogs will eat any sunflower hearts on the floor, before progressing to the dog food.

Clarington, when you kick him up the bum, tell him about BACS clearing system. I dont know anyone who pays wages by cheque, it just gets transferred automatically from employers bank account to employees.  We're in the 21st century now, not the 20th. An emergency locum I did at the beginning of the month, was paid that night and in my bank next morning.

Slugs and snails like the seedlings, but are not keen on the larger hairy plants.

I use slug pellets on the benches in the greenhouse for seedlings, but  use slug pubs in the garden.
