It was almost a perfect garden

Posted: 25/07/2015 at 21:01

I say it to myself every year, I must stake that and then don't bother. Every year I get floppy plants, they pick up a lot when the sun comes out again

So pleased

Hello there lily, good to see you too That's so great that you've seen one in your garden too, maybe all is not lost for them.

I'm pretty sure that he is living in the outhouse, the doors open all the time and I've seen him again tonight.

I take it fish based food is no good for them? Cats are now on meat only pouches and biscuits

Started this garden from scratch a few months ago and I'm growing all my plants with wildlife in mind, I never thought I would have a hedgehog

Rain

It's still raining here, at least the plants are getting a drink and I don't have to water

So pleased

Guess what? He has been spotted in the garden again tonight My partner saw him amble into the outhouse/junk shed. I've been leaving out some cat food out since we've first saw him.

Verdun and Tetley what kind people you are. I feel very lucky to have one using my garden so will try and make him at home.

Will watch out for any little ones out and about later this year.

I was shocked to see that these little things are being sold as pets People never cease to sadden me with their attitudes towards animals and wildlife. Present company excluded of course

But I will do my best for this one and feel very grateful to be so close to one

Dove sounds like your ones are well catered  for Will have a look at the link

No problem jo47, just pm your details. There won't be a lot in quantity, they are really tiny seeds. Always germinated well for me in the past.

Thanks Gardenmaiden, I'd be interested in the dark ones

I have some jacobs ladder, white ragged robin and some mixed sweet williams which are nearly ready. These have come fresh off the plants.

Also got some spare Wallflowers, Fire King and Fair Lady.

Looking for some Hollyhocks as the one I have here hasn't developed rust. Also interested in cuttings off houseplants.

So pleased

I haven't seen a hedgehog in years. I keep popping to the window to see if he's eaten anything but I think he's still hiding under the bench.

Do you think they will come everynight if food is put out for them? I get the cats in around this time so thinking I could feed the hog at the same time as I feed them

So pleased

Just seen a hedgehog outside by the back door. He's under the bench right now but I have left him out some cat food.

Made my day
