Thankyou for the support

I have been to my local hardware shop and bought a bait box and bait. I hope it works but I feel really bad about doing it.

We have no ducklings on the river this year so far, we also have a bad rat problem so I suppose they are linked.  We need to discourage people feeding the ducks so much although it brings such pleasure to the children.

Thanks for the advice, I think that I'll try the hosepipe first. I'm a bit nervous about using poison in the garden.

Help!

I have had a compost bin for 30+ years with no problems. Now  Rats.

I have got rid of it once by empting the bin and re-making it now 1 month later the rat is back. I don't put cooked food in, I kick the bin on passing and can't afford the £60 the council charges to call.  Any safe suggestions?  I don't have the strength  for frequent turning, I'm a once a year person when it comes to turning the compost bin.

Am I the only person who finds the background music intrusive? I used to look forward to  the peace and tranquility of a garden being included in the programme but last night my nerves were jangling throughout.

Many thanks for the advice, I will try both the cuttings and the suckers and keep my fingers crossed.

Mine is planted near my front door with some spring bulbs nearby. I really love it when passing neighbours mention the scent and ask what it is, I'd like to be able to pass on plants thus the need to propagate.  i'm new to this site but have already gone out and pruned my Red Robin, between the showers and listening to Gardeners Question Time.

I have a beautiful daphne bholua and have tried unsuccesfully to propagate it. I tried both cuttings and  potting up suckers and neither worked. Now its throwing off suckers again and I'd like to have another go, can anyone advise me?  The scent is lovely in early spring and cheers me up at a cold time of year!

What pollinates peas

Has anyone ever grown peas under fleece and did it protect from the pea moth and its nasty maggots?
