Don't apologise Susie. You're thinking about it. More people should do that.

and you can only attract what's around. If there are no grass snakes for miles they won't come. But you'll get plenty of species as your habitat develops, they all turn up eventually

It's an argument put forward by some. But I don't think more killing is a solution. We don't know enough about how it all works to make decisions about what lives and what dies. That's what's got us where we are now

Victoria S, if you've got a pond, even a small one, what you need as well are neglected areas where amphibians and reptiles can lurk safely. You don't need a large pond.

My great crested newts are making life difficult again by lurking under seed trays. If I pick up a seed tray, they're there. So I can't put it down again in case I squash them. But I like my nature reserve, wouldn't have it any other way

Impossible to say Meadow. Sometimes a bad start in life is something a plant can't grow out of. But not always.

When we came here there were loads of stunted runts in the meadow. Poor soil, windy and exposed. We planted lots more trees/shrubs and most of the poor specimens took off when there was more shelter. We also moved an alder that was close to 10 foot to make way for a shed, that's a large tree now. (22 years)

Nutters come my way as well. But then what would I expect.

Verdun, so glad your mum is getting help with anxiety and depression. My mum suffered much in her last years, we had to change GPs to get any help. Old age is a big enough hurdle without that as well.
