Beware queen wasps looking for a home

Posted: 18/05/2014 at 12:37

Just a heads up, I have spent the morning trying to deter a queen wasp from going into my shed, She seems to know when I open the door she flies straight in. She might just want to shave wood for her nest, but I did not want that nest in my shed.

I manage to chase her out, so keep an eye out if you leave your shed door open you might be followed.

Hi, has anyone else not had their delivery from T&M?. I sent off an order form for some New Guinea Impatiens with an expected delivery for the end of April. No money has left my account and it's nearly the end of May. I have tried phoning but you are just left hanging there.

mine is because I had a kink in it, that's where the hole is. I'll try a repair as above. If no joy I'll get a new hose

Just getting started and had several garden thefts

Hi All, might be a bit late in the day to suggest this, what I do with our pots out the front on the gravel, is drive long tent pegs through the drainage holes and into the ground before filling with earth. This is mainly to stop the postie knocking them over, but it will deter anyone stealing them.

I have a small hole in the hose pipe. I was thinking of repairing it with a bicycle puncture repair kit. Will that work or is there something better?

thanks Lyn, I know what you mean about looking untidy. I might not do them after this year.

Hi, I am growing Swan River daisies for the first time this year. They are quite big now I was just wondering when will the flowers appear. Mine look quite 'fern' like. they seem to flop in the rain, but pick themselves back up when the sun comes out.

Anyone grown these before, how was your experience with them?
