Compost heaps and rats

Posted: 20/02/2015 at 14:18
It is possible to put down poison safely if it is placed in something like a length of drainpipe where the rats can access it but livestock and pets can't reach it.

Rats are a fact of life. On the farm we used the dalmation, the sheepdog used to catch them but wasn't a killer!

Repairing my neighbours picket fence - what do I do?

It may be an easy fix, but if the neighbour wants to get a professional to do it that's his choice. And Josh will have to pay up!

If the ground isn't frozen they can go straight in the garden. I find their green shoots so cheering in the winter months. The cloves from the outside of the bulb will give the greatest return, I find.

As to the soft bulb; it will be fine if it is starting to throw up green shoots and there is no mould around the bottom of the cloves. There should be roots starting to grow, instead.

Hey! Willowkitten, I didn't say whether I was in favour of GM or not. I just wanted you to give reliable sources for what you wrote. You wrote that garlic cloves might be contaminating the soil. How exactly?

'Monsanto wants to e.g.: Get a patent for seeds and modify them in a way that they won't produce dead seeds (that's just of one their cunning ideas)'

I think you allowed a typo to get into this sentence. Did you write won't instead of will?? It's called the 'terminator gene'.

"Supermarket...I wouldn't put it past them if these are modified and could contaminate the soil if planted out"

Willowkitten, where do you get such nonsense from? How about some links to respected scientific literature!
