Thanks Higgy for highlighting this. I've been aware of it for some time and have heard of some awful tales about the nets. Like you I can't understand why fat balls are sold with them on.

Gw subscription

Posted: 01/09/2012 at 20:30

Hello, I took advantage of an earlier offer this year- think it was £20 for a year subscription, which for me was great value. Having said that in no way I am locked into this, I plan to cancel my DD at the end of the offer instead of it just rolling on to the full price.

I'm not sure but there must be an element of repetition in the magazines year upon year.

Newts

Hello bjay, what a fantastic find. I don't know much about newts. I do know that there numbers have been decreasing.Good for you that you want to do the right thing I also know that amphibians are extremely inportant in the food chain.

I had a quick look and it would seem that all the UK species are protected by law- the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981.

wildlifegardener.co.uk- gives some really good advice and a place for you to start. I am sure that some some local wildlife groups would be of help.

If it were me I would cover them back over until I worked out how they could be moved.

Nothing to worry about with the spiders in my opinion.  I would say slugs & snails. They have decimated quite a few plants in my garden this year.

Flo-  you know when something just triggers a memory that you didn't know you had. I have a look on youtube( love the internet) and found it. Still don't know for sure where I've heard it before- but I'm pretty sure it was from my grandad. Thanks

gardeningfanatic- I get what you mean now. Mis-interpreted what you meant. Yes at times the loading of this site was slow, but hopefully that is resolved now.
