The mystery of the disappearing hedgehogs

Posted: 23/10/2012 at 09:51

I would never argue what someone with the name "hoglady" writes but am interested in a couple of points

First the slug one-we are encouraged not to use slug pellets as hedgehogs are supposed to eat the poisoned slugs- despite quite a bit of evidence to the contrary-now you tell us that eating slugs will harm the hedgehog anyway-but that too seems to fly in the face of what everybody tells me-so perhaps you can explain a bit more?-I have to say this is news to me

How do they cope without us feeding them and is us feeding them such a great idea anyway-surely it all about fending for themselves?

Secondly-is it really wise to catch hedgehogs all sounds a bit traumatic for what is basically a wild animal and a young one at that-should we be interfering to that extent in nature?

As I say I am not disputing -just would like a bit more information

Becks -have added my voice -thanks for that

The Indian Summer has gone elsewhere-or stayed in India -it was always an optimistic thought-now we are all going to die from cold

Glyn-I got up- and got back down again 30 minutes later-this is the life

Jean is back-and back into Carry On mode

These are beautiful! And I am usually not a fan of dahlias. Does anyone know if bees like these as I am trying to attract bees into my garden.

Not really -well not the cactus type ones you see in the picture-they will be interested in the single or semi-double- flower ones like "bishop of landaff" and "bishops chidren"~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ tubers are avaiable from seed


white fungus in sleepers

There is not much you can do-they will disappear on their own accord -it is common too see many fungi/toadstools this time of year.

If the sleepers are sound-I wouldn't fret too much

Chris could you not have paid with a pre-loaded currency card?-sorry if you already tried that-your way seems rather expensive-nothing was broken but my pride was hurt-thanks for your sympathy

Lottie have just looked out of the upstairs window the pumpkin is about 4 inches round-I first noticed it this morning-I think it had a tea-light in it-can' t tell if it is real or not -will investigate and report back tomorrow.

Jo-I think you may be watching too much Miranda and trying to ape her antics

It will soon be porridge time- condensed milk style- 500calories a spoonfull but mmmmmm

Grilled chicken/macaroni cheese tonight

Yay-I am a winner again-I may eat some of my prize later
