mulch

Posted: 01/02/2013 at 15:23

Iwould not use saw dust or shavings for a mulch unless it had been standing for a year in  a corner of your garden.New sawdust or and shavings will ruin the soil and you will not grow anything well at all until its gone.How do I know? I did just that and all my flowers and plants suffered and all my plant lets shriveled.It took a year to recover.SO PUT THE SHAVINGS ASIDE.

feeding the otter!

it could be anything taking your fish,could be heron or a cat,your lucky to have otters in your area such beautiful creatures.I doubt very much if they would come near your pond unless it was really quite(they are very shy).Best to either go for a wildlife pond and have no worries or protect your fish with netting or iron grid protector .

Growing lupins

Posted: 29/01/2013 at 14:09

I put mine into pots with good drainage as my clay soil just would not let them grow with out being eaten by slugs so I can weather them over winter in the shed and control those pesky slugs who love to devour lupins.

Talkback: Garden birds in the snow

just witnessed our two foxes having a relationship in the back garden,they were rather connected for awhile and total unaware  of being observed as i was meant to be looking for bird life,they then relaxed and the female so sweetly slid on her side across to the male ,who now ignored her,she  kept this playfulness up for some time,then they fell asleep on the the lawn in the rain,then disappeared,I then  went on to spot to bedraggled pigeons who looked worse for wear.

I believe and I will stand corrected if wrong,that you are not allowed to shoot near a footpath or road ,it has to be 150 feet away,something like that.I remember coming into conflict with a shooting party near a path I was walking with the dog and a bullet whistling passed my ear!
