Fox Problem

Posted: 10/01/2018 at 16:25

My back garden is about 12m x 12m surrounded by a 2m high wooden fence.  I live in an urban area.  I have a problem with fox wandering the garden during the night.  i have 2 - 3 year old lhasa apso dogs who run around the back garden during the day and early evening.  If there was a confrontation betweeen the fox and the dogs I am concerned the dogs may get harmed or worse !   -   Any suggestions please ?

Rasberry Problem.

Posted: 03/09/2014 at 22:04

I have a couple of rasberry bushes planted in containers last year.  They have produced probably 50+ fruits beteeen them this year.

However the leaves, especially the lower ones have been practically skeletonised.  Can't tell what it is - it's not slugs.

Any advice please ?

Alan, did your leave go the same way for the first couple of years ?

Hi Alan, been feeding it FBB for a few weeks. Haven't watered due to the amount of rain we've had. It is growing in a gravel bed - no other plants nearby.

Hi, I planted my magnolia stellatta in 2012. For the second year running now the leaves form in early spring then turn yellow then brown in mid May before dropping off within a few weeks. No blossoms yet - plant has only grown about 6 inches in 2 years. Any advice please

Hi Lyn,
it does look exacly like yours but if left it spreads amd eventually kills the whole plant.
Your garden looks great by the way.
