I think it depends on your ground and weather. Although we are in the south, it isn't really safe to put them out in our colder microclimate before some time in April, depending on the way spring is l ...

A bit early, but we had to go to a garden centre for something else yesterday, and they had seed potatoes and onion sets in, so bought some. I was unsure about the potatoes, but as husband said, bette ...

There are several inconsistencies here.

Firstly, steel needs carbon. It can contain up to 2% depending on the use, and without carbon it is not steel. Therefore hydrogen on its own cannot be used t ...

Tahir, we used to have a Canda factory not far from us and both my SILs worked there at one time. It shut years ago, and of course C&A, who they made for, are long gone too. Is it the speed that p ...

Useful that you know about these things Tahir. More or less what I thought, but glad you know about it properly. Makes life very difficult if anyone wants to export which is exactly what we were afrai ...

I may be wrong, so you should look at the regulations very carefully to avoid problems, but I think if all the contents, which will include clay and glazes are produced in the UK, there is just VAT, b ...

Seems someone else went the poison route then having got even more fed up with it than you. Hopefully the bird restaurant and Sammison home will be back in working order soon.

Sounds useful for a large garden (or yard to you). Not many people in the UK have that much land, and certainly dogs tying themselves in knots is a well known problem even here. One method I have hear ...

I hadn't heard about them for dogs. I know there were collars that gave a small shock to dogs if they roamed too far from their owner, but not ones that beeped as a warning. I think wolves in a pack m ...

I think you tend to learn the most likely animals in an area fairly fast, and also where to look for the traces. As you say Dpack, hair on barbed wire or knowing the muddy bits of a track. Use it as o ...
