Seeds off to Lesley and Lorna. 

Should I encourage house mice into my garden?

The problem with leaving out bird food is that you will attract the big boys, and rats will be hard to get rid of.

Cabbage whites

The netting has to be very very fine, like scaffolding netting. Make sure a leaf doesn't touch the net or she will lay eggs through it.

i didn't get any on mine last year, but won't be growing anything else as the winds just have the cages down how ever much the rods are sunk in the ground.

as I only need two cabbages a week, it's not worth growing anyway. Different if you have a large family, my veg beds will be flowers next year, for bees and butterflies.

hydrangea - is it dead?

Slugs, snails and rabbits don't eat them, I think that's 'late ' plant.

This year I have been using an Irish compost, the seed germination is extremely good and the pot plants and baskets are still going strong, this will definitely be my chosen compost from now on.
