What happens when I'm at work!

Sad Ryan, but on the good side, rosebay willow herb is absolutely lethal to fuchsias, so she did do you a favour there.

Talkback: Garden pests

Posted: 22/06/2014 at 13:36

Did anyone read Toby Buckland's column the other week, he said dont let the experts make you feel guilty, if you want to pop a few pellets down, (you dont have to have blue soil) and if you want a bit of peat then use it,  if you want to put something down to kill bugs in the soil then do it.

Whats the point in trying to grow your own to save air miles, then losing it to pests.after all, once you have had children you are fighting a losing battle with being green.

 We worked out that from one old Austin 7 there are now 34 cars in my OH family alone, not to mention my lot!

If you think about it, the only true green is a dead one.

You could put a photo on, easier to tell then, just click on the tree icon. Although this wont work on phones.

Hedgehog hazards

Posted: 22/06/2014 at 12:59

Just to add about hedgehogs getting caught in things, and I am sure that everyone on here is well aware, but the worst tragedies with hedgehogs is the plastic rings that hold a 4 pack of beer together, make sure you cut every little bit before putting it in the bin. They get caught as babies and as they grow it tightens around their body.

I am sure you all know this though

Neosorexa for the rats but be very careful where you put it, its lethal for the cats, as are the slug pellets!

Your little cat was beautiful, such a shame when they get run over. Mine just sleeps in the middle of the road, he wakes at the slightest sound if a car comes and runs in. Hopefully he always will.

Nothing wrong with a good old honest bit of plagerism

The nights have been cold compared to the days, its the extreme change in temp that does it. Were they gradually hardened off.

 

Under Attack!

I never really find that works very well, it usually leaves some scar on the grass, and a yellowing plant which d

oesnt look nice. Better to feed the lawn to get it really lush, it will take over from the weeds.
