  1. Which peat brand for bog garden.

    Thanks for the replies.At least I now know both are fine to use.
  2. Which peat brand for bog garden.

    I am trying to source a couple of bags of peat for my large tubs. I can no longer find Shamrock on sale. I certainly don't want to use Westlands but the only other 2 brands I have found are Evergreen and another called bord na mona. Anyone familiar with these brands and which one may be better? Thanks in advance.
  3. Hi-again

    Just a load of mixed Sarracenia, few sundews and VFT, Untricualia, 2 cephalotus and a partridge in a pear tree.
  4. Utricularia Vulgaris

    I had this growing very well in a deep tub of water for a few years until I added 3 gold fish which I think have killed it off. It winter it died back and sunk to the bottom before coming back when it warmed up.
  5. Hi-again

    Hi all, not been on the forum for years as something called kids came along into my life so kind of lost interest for a while. I still have a reasonable collection but sadly been a bit neglectful toward them. Getting back into them now - as is my oldest so hope to be contributing and asking questions again soon. Cheers.
  6. Spider webs

    I managed to tempt one out-(well half out) by disturbing the web with a stick. It wasn't as big as some house spiders I have seen. I think it knew there was no fly as it didn't come all the way out.
  7. Spider webs

    Apparently its the funnel weaver spider - funnel weaver, Agelena labyrinthica.
  8. Spider webs

    In a local field I noticed these huge webs at ground level. They were around 2ft in diameter and the entrance to the spider burrow was arond an inch wide. I tried to use a stick to see what spider was hiding down below but it would not come out- there were about 20 of these webs. Anyone shed any light on what spider is making these huge webs?
  9. Reniformis- learning the hard way

    I thought I would try submerging for a couple of days my U.Reniformis to get rid of some pesky aphids that we causing problems. It came out the water yesterday and the leaves looked a bit off colour and today this.... Thankfully there is a bit of life down the side of the pot
  10. Bees

    The bees have done that to my roses. Again not bothered as I am not overly keen on those plants.
  11. Bees

    Thanks for the replies. Yes I do enjoy watching them go about their daily lives. I bought a 2nd one from our local Lidl yesterday to encourage even more.
  12. Bees

    With the recent decline of bees I bought a bee house last year which has proved to be a huge sucess but for a quite a while a lot of the holes have been plugged with what looks like mud. Any clues what is behind them (eggs, adult bees?) I am wondering what ever may be behind them has died in which case I could re open them for more bees.
