Compost heaps and rats

Posted: Yesterday at 09:58

It's just one of those things, you live in the country, you get rats. They don't like disturbance so if you can go out everyday and bash the sides they may not stay. Put the whole thing on small mesh chicken wire. Helps a bit.

Glad to see there are still a few of us who use 'Natures Own' to rear our seeds.

Sweet peas have a long tap root that doesn't like disturbance, you would do better to sow them in root trainers, or toilet roll tubes for cheapness,  only one to a pot, you can then plant them out without disturbing the long roots. They don't need heat they are very hardy, can be sown in Autumn, not that I do.  You could sow three to a flower pot and plant the whole lot out together.

if you sow in a seed tray you are going to have to pot on, so be very careful. They need pinching out, so you get a bushy plant rather than a leggy one.
