Gardens for Dogs

Posted: 06/08/2012 at 02:01

All goes to show you should do some research before you get a dog.

Small gardens are not really suitable for large dogs.  Labs were bred to be working gun dogs; not small garden dogs.

People don't seem to appreciate that dogs get destructive or otherwise unmanageable when they are bored.  That is not the dog's fault; it is the fault of the owner.

There is something funny about rabbit meat, and if you lived entirely on it you would starve.  Is this true?

Alternatively get a suitable dog, that'll learn 'em!

Talkback: How to clean bird feeders

Ye Gods and little fishes!

Do tell us about your cleaning routine in the kitchen. How do you find time to feed the birds too!

Purple leaves on Elan Strawberry Plant.

Not really good practice to take too many runners from one plant and only root at the first joint, cutting the runner off beyond that.  It is also best to cut off and remove any old leaves after fruiting, retaining the new leaves.

Now, I have just Googled this strawberry and the info says remove the flowers/fruit in the first year and that the plant is biennial.  Does that mean it may not have runners, and you have to either grow it from seed or keep buying in new palnts?

Climber to cover large wall

If it's not Dom's wall I think he should think very hard before he does anything to someone else's wall.  The neighbour could change his mind, complain about any damage or move house.  I would certainly do something about that unsightly block wall to the left of the gable end though.

If I were you I would clean the wall with a pressure washer before you do anything.

Anybody that suggests Russian Vine needs a severe kicking. It is a terrible thug and your neighbour will not be pleased.  Ivy is not a good choice either.

Lucky you with T&M; I have vowed never to buy their seed again because it is so expensive and not very good at germinating.

What to do with a bucket of snails!!

Ammonia mix.  Do you have Ammonia to hand?  Sounds a complicated method to me.

Scatter them on the road and let the cars do the squishing.  A case of the quick or the dead.

Gracie, I'm not sure blackbirds eat snails.  Thrushes do, but I've noticed they are particular about the kind of snail they eat.

On the other hand, I want a pair of Oystercatchers for my garden; they are ace snail hunters!

Plant ID... is it a wee?

And the berries are poisonous.
