Sorry, I didn't expect mice to have a taste for onions with their cheese!

Drainage for Plant Box

Posted: 12/09/2014 at 17:18
Why cannot you drill holes at the bottom of the wooden sides? You can drill one or two holes and put corks in them to prevent the water running straight through or remove the corks to allow the box to drain when there is plenty of rain.

Compost needs a balance of brown (shredded paper, cardboard) and green (vegetable matter). Leave until it has all rotted down and you can't tell what went into it and the garden and the little wiggy worms will love it.

Mould is unimportant, it all rots down in the end.

Random question but why....

They have a beat which they will usually remain in. There is probably a different bat on the other side of the house.

Love them, even when they find their way in and they fly round the room when I'm watching TV; or in bed; or having a meal.

Plant ID please

Lemon verbena? Lippia?

Handy bags are usually a metre square bag. I would have that delivered by the builders merchants, but I wouldn't put it in a car, it probably weighs a tonne.

If I were you I would have another go either this Autumn or next Spring with new sets. They do not need to be netted. Start them off in modules so that they have little green shoots when you plant them then the birds won't pull them up thinking they are good to eat. Mice can dig and don't usually touch onions anyway.

You can pickle the onions that are big enough. If you try to plant the little bulbs this Autumn or next Spring they will go straight to flower and will be useless.

A wheelbarrow or sack barrow or trolley is your friend.
