Thanks for all the information, I often wonder where these pretty and useful little creatures vanish to in the winter. I will treat them kindly in future and try to find a space in the shed for them. Should I just leave them on the workbench to find their own cosy corner to sleep in and will the spiders already in residence leave them alone?

Hi, can anyone suggest a good way to take cuttings from heather. I would like more plants from a very pretty one which is now starting to bloom. Its in a pot and I am reluctant to take pieces off in case it pouts. Thanks

Hi, we had a really sunny day here in Carmarthenshire last week which showed up how dirty the windows were, I decided to go outside to clean them, I saw several ladybirds on the window frames, they were more orange than red and I wondered what they were doing just basking in the sun.

Do grass snakes eat snails. I found lots of empty snail shells near my dalek compost bin and wondered what had caused this.

Pink tools

Posted: 31/08/2014 at 06:35

I got some from Tesco, they are so easy to find in the garden as pink shows up whereas green or black are not as easy to see if you mislay them, the quality is not up to much but all my small garden tools used to get lost anyway....

Hi, I find that I have to remove the keys from my car ignition to remove shopping etc as my car locks itself, even if the keys are in the ignition. Even when putting fuel in as well... my point is that many clothes do not have pockets which makes keeping keys safe and accessible difficult when you have your hands full... any suggestions? I am always loosing my pruners in the garden too I dont know where they go as I have had to replace so many and never found the ones I lost.. does anyone know where they could have gone??
