Talkback: Lily beetle

These horrible little creatures are the only thing I kill in the gardenπŸ‘πŸ‘
As I am as organic as I can possibly be I don't kill any other little creature as I firmly
believe everything has a place in the great food chain of life.πŸ’š
My family of hedgehogs,toads,frogs&newts all look after my garden safe in the knowledge
that they will not be killed by eating POISON πŸ™€
The only other little creatures that come to call in my garden that I'm not too keen on are
moles who like the taste of my organic earth worms😳
& OTTERS who have eaten all my beautiful KOIπŸ‘ŽπŸ˜‹
But when you are starving who cares where the next meal comes from when your an otter!

Become a hedgehog champion!

  • Just found this forum after messing about with my i-pad to down load the FREE I-pad app for Gardener's World.Fabulous!Just a break from adding the compost to the flower beds ready to feed all the little creatures in the soil.I must say I fully agree with the last two garden (nature) lovers comments .We might not like the slimy ones but like it or not THEY do feed our other little creatures in the food chain ,Chris Packum(sorry Chris if I spelt your name wrong X) was absolutely right a few Gardeners World articles ago when he said  everything has a place in the food chain-
  • I don't know what use lily-beetles or vine-weevils have though? but apart from them love em or hate them everything-else does!Even Otters!! who last year ate all my beautiful Koi. I now have little Canary goldfish-11 actually to make a football team-my football team O.T.B.C.
