Hi

We have moles merrily digging their way around the garden, and solar powered sonic repellers are not working (tho they did last year).

Humane suggestions would be welcome!

Thanks obelixx and nutcutlet.

Lots to think about. We are wildlife gardeners, including wildlife ponds. I know all gardens and ponds are natural to a degree, but we try very hard to encourage wildlife and not to use chemicals, precisely for the reasons obelixx has put forward.

I guess it's back to good old manual labour re crocosmia!

Thanks, but I'm concerned at them brushing against it...

I'm really concerned about using glyphosate on the crocosmia which is coming through a layer of weed membrane and gravel. We have hedgehogs, grass snakes and many birds - will they be harmed by glyophosate?

Thanks Fairygirl - you've already given me some ideas!! The soil gets a lot of rainwater run off. For that reason, we're going to make some raised beds. It's really the lack of sunlight that the problems, just a few hours in the morning.

Hi

Has anyone any ideas on what to plant in this really difficult area. It's near the house, so would love to make it a feature. We've tried herbs and veg, all of which have struggled due to the lack of sun for most of the day.

If I turned into a flowered area, what would you suggest?

Thanks!!
