Yes, Charley, the offence was causing suffering to an animal. Silly man!

I would leave it until there is good leaf growth - about April. Good hunting, lass!

bunnysgarden,

Agree entirely with Bob and Dove - no danger at all, provided you look after the dog and adopt basic hygiene: follow the instructions on the container, wear rubber gloves or disposables, don't splash the stuff on yourself (I usually wear protective glasses), wait for a dry day.

I've got rid of several infestations quite easily.

Talkback: Making a stumpery

ould I just appeal to everyone not to go out into the countryside and start bringing wood home, instead of leaving it where it is already supporting its own wildlife. If you've got newly-cut wood on site, by all means use it, but otherwise leave it where it is

Sorry, Jimmy, but this really isn't good enough, or are you just being controversial for a laugh?

You are claiming your opinion is the only one that counts, but the only way you can defend your position is to call people that disagree with you weirdos and potheads, as well as associating them with a popularly maligned group - politicians.

New Horizon peat-free seems to be reliable and consistent year after year, and doesn't seem difficult to water.

Beetroot and Water Voles--Keeping them away!

Posted: 14/01/2013 at 12:05

Water voles will feed on root crops and, should anyone think they're not capable of that, that they will also gnaw tree bark. I think you need to be fairly expert to read the signs that animals leave behind and give a definitive answer.

I suggest approaching your local Wildlife Trust. They will know if there are water voles locally and they will either have, or have access to, someone who knows all about water voles. They will be only too happy to look at the damage and tell you who the culprit is.
