Talkback: Where have all the hedgehogs gone?

Posted: 19/10/2012 at 21:47

We have hedgehogs in our garden, although we don't often see them just the poo they leave behind. what we do miss in Bedford is the thrushes.  We and our immediate neighbours haven't seen any in the garden for the last 3 or 4 years.  Even the sparrows were not as abundant this year

Thank you all for your advice, I will pass it on to my wife, and we will let you know the result next year

Can anybody help my wife.  She has a climbing rose,pictured above, which has got way out of control, and she is at a loss as how to prune it.  All the books she has read tell her to cut right back to just above a bud, or growing point. The trouble is that this particular plant has not got any below about 3'6".  It's a good flowing plant with lots of blooms, but the're all at the top. It is also one of her favourites, so she is reluctant to lose it.  We think it's called "Golden Showers", but we can't be certain.

Can any body tell me the best way to get rid of/kill red and black ants.  For the last 3 years we have been overrun with ants of both types to such an extent that I have had to put the mower on it's highest setting to stop it scalping the grass.  I haave tried putting down ant traps containing Nippon, boiling water. bleach, even digging down to find the queen, but they keep coming back. At this moment I have 18 nests in a 20 x 8 metre lawn
