Hi All,

I need a fair amount of topsoil or compost to add to the flowers beds within our garden. Do any of you know of a good supplier within the Nottingamshire area?

We have at least one frog and one toad in the garde. Both were under a plastic composter base the other day. I am currently considering contacting Channel 5 to see if they would be interested in a new idea i have called Amphibian wars. Well it has to be better than Britain clearly doesn't have talent or Big brother!

I have a creche for voles in my composter. I think the unit must have raised about 10 generations since I put the composter in place. To be fair I love the fact I have a huge variety of wildlife in my garden including the resident toad who rests under the discarded base of the said composter.

Advice on planting native hedgerow please

If you want to encourage a wide diversity of wildlife then perhaps make small holes oin the back walls to bring nesting song birds into the area
