Can I use vermiculite instead of grit?

Hi. I have two lovely tree peonies and wondered if anyone had tried growing new ones from seeds. Last autumn I had a glut of black seeds which were very hard 'cased' and wondered if these had to be scored to help germination.

I have tried hard today to buy a hog house. Unfortunately, they only seem to be available via the web. Can anyone suggest the best type of hog house to look for and where to buy it? There are so many different ones to chlose from. I have also been told that it is critical that the doorway is the right size, some apparently are too small. Is it essential that they have hanged lids for cleaning after the hog(s) vacate it? I would appreciate any help.

Found a hibernating hog under a bush early this spring when sorting out the pruning. I hasten to say that pruning was halted until it came out of hibernation! I am going to buy a hog house today and, hopefully, he will return this autumn. I will place the 'house' as close a possible to the bush it used before. There are signs of at least one around our garden and I suspect there are some hoglets looking at the poo. Fingers crossed.

I have evidence of hogs in my garden and was putting out water regularly. However, the water also attracted rats! We have put out rat poison, under plants pots and concrete slabs so other wild life are unable to get to it. Have others experienced this?

They are the size of a cherry but do taste like a plum. The stone looks as though it could be whitish and the same size as cherries. Very sweet and juicy. Hope this pic helps. Thanks again for your help.
