You have a lovely garden, and a great backdrop. Why not leave a strip of lawn unmown, but add some wildflower plug pants. Or just dig out some boarders for wildflower planting, something like below..

GW returns tonight @ 8:30pm BBC2.

For some reason I've just done a random search on google to see when it would be returning, only to discover its on tonight! I could so easily have missed it as I've not seen any reference to its return on TV.

Looking forward to it.

Photos of your ponds please

Thanks for the photos so far, much appreciated

Growing mealworms for beginners.

Thats a great guide Edd, thanks. How many worms do you first put into your tub to start the process off?

I tried it once but things got rather smelly but I think that was because the container I used was far too small, and with not enough bran. I put out live mealworms every year to coincide with bird nesting season, so I may give it another go.

Im lucky to live reasonably close to live foodsdirect..

What would you do

Sounds exciting. Be sure to take photos before, during and afterwards. In years to come you will be grateful of them. Oh, and post them here as well please as I'd love to see them.
