Cats have killed all my frogs

Posted: 09/10/2012 at 15:15

No Gracie5, I do not live in the country,assumption can be wrong. I live in the suburbs of a very busy town and am yet to see a fox square up to a squirell. I am 70 and yes, we do have squirells too.

Cats have killed all my frogs

I encourage wildlife in my garden and tolerate cats too. Grace, as with cats, unless I see them myself, I would not blame foxes.For 40 years I have watched cats, foxes badgers and birds in my garden. I have a pond too with fish and frogs but have not seen foxes "attacking " the pond. I have had herons take the fish and seen cats catch frogs and play with them. I rest my case.

I was not aware that rosehip "hairs" were harmful. I have used bruised rosehips  steeped in honey as I believe it helps with arthritis. Some hairs do get included. I hope they are not harmful . Can some knowledge person please enlighten me. Thank you.

Yes, and it does very well if kept well watered. My neighbour loves it and thinks it is too expensive to buy(she is 82!!) So last year I planted four roots in some large redunant pots from my garden and they did VERY well.(I mean the rubarb) She has just picked her last lot  for the year and we have covered the crowns with spent compost.....result, one very happy young lady. So do try it and good luck!

Thank the Lord(as my Jamacian friend would say...) I thought I was odd, missing a mere dog in a gardening show.......what's wrong with watching MD(I mean, what he is doing!

Nice to be with kindred spirit

Wild Garlic

Why Flowering rose?. jekka herbs sell plants at exhobatant prices. Where did they get them from? M y friend has them in her garden and can't get enough of them. As  you say, they are lovely with dainty white clusters in early spring and the leaves taste heavenly in peso for pasta as they are not too strong. Besides, they plug a gap for garlic as the real garlic bulbs are not ready till the summer.The leaves freeze well too. I would love to grow my own instead of robing the wild.
