Poisoned trees

But, I would also see it from his point of view. Were they Leylandii? I am inclined to believe that planting a row of Leylandii is an act of aggression. Would the trees have taken light from his garden? How tall did you intend to grow them? Did he know that?

Could you talk to him and ask what he would like as a hedge between you? Beech, Holly, Hornbeam?

I am not excusing him; it is criminal damage; just pointing out that there is a second side to every story.

Do slug eat thru' carrier bags

Not a daft question but no! butterfly or moth eggs are usually laid on the plant that will feed the caterpillars. Especially nettles, which everybody is so keen to eradicate!

Talkback: How to force daffodil bulbs

Posted: 27/08/2014 at 12:24
Hyacinths: They have to be specially prepared bulbs. Most catalogues have them.

Paperwhites take about 8 weeks from planting, I think.

You can do it with lots of bulbs. Reticulata Iris, grape hyacinths, Crocus, miniature daffodils for instance.

Makes you Wonder!

Didn't think you would stay away for long.

Are you really permitted to put live slugs and snails in the rubbish?????????????

If you can't kill them (why not, it sounds really wimpy?) put them out on the road for the cars to deal with.

You will have to explain to me in words of one syllable why you are not permitted to kill them by her(?) indoors.

In my garden it's WAR!

I think most of us would ignore them. Certainly not spray them. They do little damage.

Poorly Chicken

I think you should ask this question on a dedicated chicken website. Try Downsizer, maybe. There are smallholder/livestock message boards around.

Bored of my garden!

Perhaps you could change the colour scheme. The green obviously takes care of itself, but you can confine yourself to white flowers and purple foliage.

Do get yourself a greenhouse, you'll love it! As big as you can manage.

ladybird?

Surely ladybirds only bite if you put your finger in their mouths?

You will only get ticks if you wander in long grass with bare legs.

To feed or not to feed ???

They rely entirely on you for their food; maybe they exhausted the food in the pots long ago.
