Strawberry Plant Leaves

Posted: 05/07/2014 at 17:50

Well, the wild rabbits have eaten one batch of strawberry plants, so I've moved the rest that are in pots onto a bench    Last year the birds got all the blackcurrants, so the strawbs will add to their "5-a-day" I suppose

Hi, thanks to you both for your replies.......will leave them on as suggested.    Just worried that they will ripen when we're on holiday and the birds will get them!

help!!!

I would suggest sucking whole cloves (2 or 3) in your mouth, rather than the oil of cloves.   Wholes cloves are more readily available in the supermarket at the herbs and spices section.......you will get a higher concentration of clove oil from whole cloves and it will have a better effect.

I wondered if I can remove the large leaves from my strawberry plants so that the sun can ripen the fruit quicker?

Thanks in advance!

Snails - the French have the right idea

Actually, I quite enjoy looking at the shells on snails, some of them are really beautiful colours

We seem to have a lot of slugs more than snails.   I can go out to the garden on a damp night and finds slugs making their way up my house walls and even the windows!!     But I have also seen field mice nibble at the stems of young plants, so they're not  popular either........but this year I haven't bothered to put anything down, I've given up lol!   The funny thing is, they never eat my weeds.....

Talkback: Rabbits and myxomatosis

Posted: 19/01/2012 at 19:03
I have rabbits in my country garden, they eat everything except the weeds! I've never forgiven them for eating all my young hellebores!
However, a year or so back I found a young rabbit sitting quietly at the edge of my garden, he didn't look well and made no attempt to move off when I got close up to him. His eyes were almost shut and he looked as if he was ready to nod off, however, he had disappeared when I came back to check on him.
What are the symptoms of "myx"?
