Wow!  Just been asking Mr Google about it - seems it was a lot more serious than I thought - 5 people died in Santa Cruz.  We were at the other end of the island and it was bad enough there.

Quite - why not leave them there?  You really don't want them elsewhere in the garden - and they WILL go elsewhere nearby if they're disturbed.  I have voles in mine - again, better than them digging tunnels under the veg and eating the roots, except that they do that as well....

Are you cutting them down in Feb and giving them lots of leaf mould?  Mine have done really well this year.

Yes - that's what I thought.  Glad it's not just my opinion then!
