Talkback: Azalea and campanula pot display

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:27

Talkback: Ants

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:27
those red ants are evil , when they get you, they really sting. I have colonies all over my garden, black near the house and red from half way down the garden, I don't know why they like my heavy clay so much, they must have to work even harder, wish they would do more sifting for me and save me the trouble. on the whole I don't mind them but in the pots they are a bit of a problem.

I love this feature only hope our bee population doesn't deminnish any further, I saw a programme that blames nicotine substances in products that people use on the gardens and fields, it stands to reason if nicotine kills people, what chance does a BEE stand. hope people work this one out before it is too late

I found this item really good and wanted to keep it in my scrap book but no matter how I tried I couldn't incorperate this or the bumble bee artical into scrap book. one miniut it allowed me in then it wouldn't. I have used scap book before and worked the system OK! I am now tearing my hair out, has any one else suffered at the hands of scapbook?
