badgers in gardens

Posted: 08/08/2015 at 12:37
My OH and I were dairy farmers until we retired. I cannot grasp the point of clearing the shelves of milk. If you ask most people whether they would pay more for milk they would say 'No.' If they are honest.

Unfortunately all Governments encourage a cheap food policy. Always have, always will.

I don't want to get embroiled in a pro- anti- badger argument, but I suspect the pro-badger people never stop to think how much badgers suffer if they get TB.

I have to stop feeding the birds in my garden

I disagree. Stop feeding the rat! They are never alone, it probably has a family.

Wash your hands very thoroughly after you have re-filled the feeder if you choose not to remove it. Rats carry diseases.

What's happened?

Looks like mildew. It has been a rotten summer.

Buy mole traps or consult the local mole-catcher!

What apple are these?

Or crab apples - raw.

Identify this tree please

Those look like Cornus leaves. There are many varieties of C Kousa. I suggested that Cornus because the books say it has good Autumn colour.

Good luck with your quest. Perhaps you can come back on the board with a photo when it flowers. That would help us to be definitive.

Ah, it sounds like Autumn fruiting. The sticks should have been cut down, but so long as you are treating it well, enjoy the fruit. Cut the fruited stems away in February next year.

Give them time. I've never heard of this problem so I think patience is required.

Why remove the fruit, unless to your mouth? And why prune? You do not say the variety or whether summer or autumn fruiting.

Maybe it should have been cut back when you planted it.
