Re: Big container for leaf mould

One thing if you do use those bags is to tie the handles to stakes of some kind. I use pigtails but a piece of timber is fine. Advantage there is that they hold the sides up which makes filling and emptying much easier . It's a right pain when the thi gs keep foldin in on theirslves. Oh and £65 for ...

Re: Big container for leaf mould

I tend to use the large builders sacks , used for around a tonne of sand normally. Without getting into the whole waste issue they are generally a one use package and builders end up skipping them. Easy to find on practically any building site or freecycle. I was always under the impression that lea...

Re: Lidl have thermals in today

Popped into our local ish lidl and to be honest there wasn't much there or rather not much left. Perhaps people have been heeding the usual stories of worst weather ever to come . They also seem to have stripped the shelves of the bottles of belgian beer that i was hoping to pick up as well.

Re: Do not rely on RAC to get you home.

I'm with green flag and only had to call them out once but was happy with the service none the less. I lost the nearside wheels off my trailer on the motorway in Derbyshire and when i say lost i really mean lost as all eight wheel studs were sheared off and the wheels were nowhere to be seen and i'd...

Another one to check out is the Warm home discount. Apply to your utility supplier and if you meet the criteria , which it would seem that you do , you'll get a refund.

Re: Keeping safe your supplies at home

Part of me does think it's a shame to kill them , live and let live and all that. On the other hand i've seen and experienced the damage they can do and as it's practically impossible to completely seal the garage and keep them out i feel that trapping is the better option. I have mixed feelings wit...

Re: Keeping safe your supplies at home

Strange thing is the humane trap hasn't caught anything this time. I say strange because in the past it has done really well. I leant it to a customer last year and she caught one a day for almost a fortnight , 13 in total . I have a sneaking suspicion that some of that was the same mouse caught mor...
