digging up St John's wort

St John's Wort

Hypericums calycinum, androsaemum, perforatum, 'Hidcote' and any other Hypericum you can think of. I've seen them all called St John's Wort here.

The one I was brought up to call St John's Wort is H. perforatum. That's the one that's sold as medicine.

Mice moved into my car some years ago and made a nest using the foam padding from the back seat. They destroyed far more than they used.

I think chewing is what they do. Maybe we should offer them chewing gum
