how to get rid of wasp nest?

Posted: 05/07/2014 at 09:16

If you tip it out they'll disperse. Or you can get wasp nest killer from GC etc. Use it at night when they're asleep

Help with plants for boggy garden

Is this the sort of bog that turns dry, rock hard and cracked in summer or is it always wet?

It's good. I expected a bit more procrastination at the very least.

Also didn't donate bekkie. There are so many things I'd love to be able to donate to or join but........

Is phytolacca 'laka boom' the same as pokeweed?

Posted: 04/07/2014 at 14:54

This one?

http://www.kernock.co.uk/acatalog/Phytolacca-Laka-Boom-VR-U2531.html

It's not the same species, poke weed is Phytolacca americana.

If it's like pokeweed it will have large roots but they're not invasive and if you don't let it seed all over the garden it won't

I hope this copy and paste grom my in box will work

Wonderful news, we’ve protected our bees! Yesterday Syngenta withdrew their controversial application to allow their banned bee-killer pesticides back on UK fields.


Owen Paterson, the environment minister, sided with Syngenta. But the decision was deemed so toxic that it was brought all the way up to the Prime Minister and his cabinet to discuss.

The day before the big meeting, the huge people-powered petition signed by over 200,000 of us was delivered to the PM’s desk. And on the morning of the meeting, hundreds of us swarmed on Downing St to confront the ministers as they arrived.

Dressed as bee-keepers, bees and pesticides, and with a host of other campaign organisations we chanted at the top of our voices and left the ministers in no doubt that we expected them to put our bees before Syngenta’s profits.  And it worked! The government stalled and didn’t announce a decision, forcing Syngenta to back down.

38 Degrees members have a great history of protecting our countryside and wildlife. From campaigning for the European ban in the first place, through to stopping our forests from being sold off, we have shown we’re prepared to organise both online and in person to make change happen.

We have a small and nimble staff team which means we can move quickly to launch campaigns like this to protect our bees, and 38 Degrees is 100% funded by its members. Lots and lots of people chipping in a small amount soon adds up, and means that together we can take on goliath companies like Syngenta and win!

Can you set up a regular donation of just £2 or £3 a week so that we can continue to make the UK a more sustainable place to live?

 

We still need to keep our eyes peeled. Syngenta have said they’re going to re-apply next year. And our so-called environment minister still doesn’t back the ban or believe the science. But, for this summer at least, our bees will be buzzing around our fields and gardens, safe from any new Syngenta pesticides.


Thanks so much for everything you do,

Robin, Maddy, the 38 Degrees team & the bees


PS: If you can't afford to donate this time, don't worry. 38 Degrees members help win campaigns in a whole host of ways, from donating money, to turning up to events and even just spreading the word about campaigns. Thanks so much for everything you do.
