Hi all from Down Under,
Boy, reading all your problems about borers makes me think that maybe I =
won't consider ordering any plants from America, if I was going to think =
about it. Have no idea how to go about it anyway.
As far as earwigs, we do have them here and I have heard (yet to try it) =
that if you lay rolled up newspaper (make like a tunnel) around your =
garden, the earwigs will crawl into it during the night. Then the next =
day you just tip the paper on end and tap all the bugs into a bucket of =
water. Apparently it works!
What about a cure for rabbits? I have a couple of pesky ones around the =
house and I think they are just living in the bushes - no sign of any =
burrow that I can fill in. However, they have taken a liking to my Dutch =
iris and I am none too pleased. Would be nice if someone knew of some =
sort of cage or similar that they could be trapped in and removed. =
Traps are illegal and cruel anyway, plus I have my cats and dogs to =
All the best
Where at last we have some spring weather - 21C, the sun is shining and =
I'm out into the garden!
