Brandling Worms

When you add them to the soil they die. But by that time their job making compost will be done. They will have left behind eggs and youngsters in the compost bin to keep up the good work.

Brandlings are not young garden worms; they are a different species.

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

With so many orders coming in at this time of year, I don't think any supplier would analyse their orders to see if people were ordering in concert.

It is pretty obvious certain suppliers don't look at this site or they would up their game! Ordering from certain firms should not be a lottery; it is such a waste of time, money and energy.

You have to be careful not to leave it in full sun as it doesn't like it. They prefer to be pot-bound. Feed.

They are very tolerant.

Rye pancakes, odd results, and cheap pan

If you buy another non-stick pan ensure you only use it on the lowest heat, they don't take kindly to high heat and they should last for years. If you want to use high heat buy a cast iron pan.

Beech makes a lovely hedge. Keeps its dead leaves until Spring.
