to upload a photo, make it smaller, the site can't cope with normal size pics but doesn't tell you when you try.

The mystery of the disappearing hedgehogs

Posted: 11/06/2017 at 09:48

slugs and hedgehogs are all part of nature's diversity. I think it's a mistake to pick one species to save above all others. The biggest threat to all of it is humans with the destruction of habitats and applications of chemicals to upset the balance.

How did it start?

It just sort of crept up on me, I can't remember the beginning. I only dug holes as a child in my parents' garden 

Stipa gigantea not happy?

We had a very dry spring as well but OK now. I have a huge garden and couldn't possibly water much of it so I don't water anything after I've watered it in. Rarely lose anything but I choose plants that can cope.

just enough to stop it drying too much for too long. You'll never need to water it again after this year

Don't be too diligent with the water, they look OK to me for new plantings and they don't do well in wet soil

 Fungi are part of the breaking down of dead wood, this fungus and elder are often see together. The fungus is the result, rather than the cause, of dead and dying wood. Fungal spores are always in the air and will find a home where a tree/shrub is dying

Yes, a spiraea, someone will be able to tell you which one

The red is Centranthus ruber, aka Valerian, bees love the flowers, it will regrow if cut back.

I can't see the bush, clearly. Can you get a closer view to show the leaf shape. One of the spiraeas is a possibility
