Garden Notes

Garden Club The Villager

We have all spent the last few months marvelling at the range of plants that are behaving in unusual ways. What it has shown is the difference between everyone’s garden and the differences within each garden. You now know where the warmest, most sheltered and probably best drained places are in your garden. They are where those plants were exceptionally early. Of course some plants are sticking to their normal routine, but enough have flowered to show the favoured spots. Now you need to build on this. That plant that you know is a bit tender, can be tried in these spots. Think of the fun you can have! ...

HART Wildlife Update

The Villager

The variety of wildlife seen at the hospital is very dependent on the weather and time of year. Traditionally, March is the month when hedgehogs start to come out of hibernation; often large male hedgehogs are the first to emerge. If you think you have hedgehogs hibernating in your garden and want to know when they wake up you can place a stick or piece of rolled-up paper in front of the nest to see if it is disturbed – if it is moved the chances are the hedgehog has been up and about. Hibernation can take its toll, leaving emerging animals dehydrated and hungry after their period of sleep. Signs that a hedgehog is in trouble include being seen out during the day and having an unsteady, wobbly walk. If you come across one you are worried about please provide a bowl of water and some food; meaty wet cat or dog food, mealworms, peanuts etc can be a life saver and ring HART for advice. Always avoid putting down bread and milk, as although they will eat it, it can cause diarrhoea and add to their dehydration problem; hedgehog are lactose intolerant (the sugar found in milk), as are many mammals including some people. ...

Garden Notes

Garden Club The Villager

What an odd year. The daffodils are racing up and the snowdrops are going slow. My May flowering exochorda shrub was in bloom in December and iris reticulata and grape hyacinth have flowered. The ground has been so wet that it has been impossible to get on with many jobs. I finally gave up trying to garden and fled down to Cornwall. I expected to find the whole county ablaze with flowers but it was just like any other January. True the ...

Crimestoppers

Crimestoppers The Villager

Christmas and New Year have now long gone, but sadly not everyone experienced peace and goodwill to all men, or women. Domestic incidents are the only identified incident type that each year shows a significantly higher level of reporting in the run-up to Christmas and New Year. On average over the past ten years, 20 per cent more domestic incidents have been reported in December than in a similar period earlier in the year. The financial pressures of Christmas, spending time with distant relatives – or even close relatives that are usually at work/school/college – or simply the desire to give your family the best Christmas ever, can all add to the tension at home. ...
