Our foxes probably number about 4, they are going to have to go some to keep up with way rabbits breed.

I was thinking of Verdun down there where there is a huge rabbit population. Primrose have two of these machines and as you say, the right up sounds good, pity they dont work.

Good on the doc Hosta, you must listen, and rest that knee.

Wotsits to what they say, you must come first, and no more decorating! 

I am giving up growing veg, just put my Spring green plants in the compost bin. Think of all the flower growing space!

What with rabbits and high winds, there no point in battling on, I have persevered for 4 years. There comes a time......

Advice on climber and willow screen

Posted: 27/07/2015 at 19:18

We bought something like to go round our oil tank, it started to break down after about 18 months, we bought another to replace it which we left for awhile till the old ones had broken down a bit more, when we came to use it, it had already rotted, not the wood, but the wire holding it together.

Maybe plant a climber that benefits from a good cut down each Spring, like  a Jackmanii clematis,  then if you need to replace the fencing the plant's already down.

Has anyone tried the ultrasonic pest scarer on rabbits, they are stripping my garden.

They look a bit cheap at 35.00 but I am getting desperate now.


Newbie alert!

It's looking lovely Dave, an Acer would be nice.

have a scout round for shade loving climbers, that will break the fence up a bit (not literally)

i hope the lawn keeps as beautiful as that in the shade, it looks almost unreal, such as lovely deep green.

I have never, ever had them eaten like that nut. But the butterflies come just the same, I assume they breed in the hedgerows there are miles of open spaces around here, I drive 30 miles to my daughter and see nothing but hedgerows and fields, apart from Bodmin, but even then that's very open, which is why if I want to put the odd few slugs pellets in my garden, I don't feel guilty.
