They will shoot out in the Spring, then be careful as the slugs could chew them off!

As rats are mostly only active through the night, I fail to see how this will work, all the time you leave them, they are breeding more and more.

Do you have neighbours, they will be plagued with them as well.

A "how much?!!?" moment.....

My OH has just said that they cannot go to the quarry anymore,  which is in St Breward, Bodmin,  for Cornish granite.

It now has to go from the quarry to Hull, then it goes to Bristol then it is delivered to their workshop about 10 miles from the original quarry, then, if its not

Headstone standard, which has to be very good, the process is reversed, hows that for travel miles!!!

Talkback: How to store, freeze and dry your harvests

I think with lemons and oranges it would be better to just freeze the juice. You could grate the rind to freeze separately.

I wonder if they are migrating to different climes, damp here or warmer in Cornwall, I dont know.

Do you know where your pets are tonight?

Chilean Lantern Tree - crinodendron hookerianum

Plant them out in the garden, mine are as Steephills, 12ft high or more, they are real tuffies usually.

They are not really pot plants, if they survive the winter, and they should, they grow easily from seed or cuttings.
