Help Save the Hedgehogs Part II

Posted: Yesterday at 20:05

My hog house is on our patio about 2 metres from our back door.It sits on concrete under a shrub.Not a place you would normally think of hedgehogs going.In the summer we sit just a couple of feet away knowing there is generally a hedgehog taking a kip!

Just checked the hog house and I have 3 residents today! Always interesting to see this as hogs are not really very social!

I would also like to find something like this (free if possible!!!).

At present I use a spreadsheet to list all my plants but I can't add photos which is a shame.

I have a winter flowering honeysuckle and the leaves are curling and wrinkly.Any ideas what the problem is and what can be done about it?

Euphorbia ID's please!

Just to counter losing labels I have a spreadsheet where I enter all (or most) of my plants.Simply Name and when and where bought and now I put the position in the garden.So now if I lose labels I can check the list and find out the details!

Euphorbia ID's please!

The first does have a dark eye so is martinii.

Many thanks and I will now get labels written up!
