Moles- The Gardener's Friends [Apr. 10th, 2017|12:13 pm]
Tony Grist
It has just dawned on me that molehills (of which we have a never-ending supply) are an excellent source of friable, aerated soil for use in plant pots. No need for heavy, back-breaking spadework- you just crouch down and scoop the earth up with your hands.

This morning I have potted up a curry tree, a couple of red-stemmed plants whose names I don't know and a clump of lavender.

I've done the very same thing last week! I wish I could train moles to do the vegetable garden every winter... (Also, just imagine how cute a tame mole would be, eh?)

I expect gardeners have known about this since forever- but it's all new to me.

I've never had a garden with moles, so though I grew up with gardening in my veins it's new to me as well. Weirdly enough the moles stay just outside my garden - which is convenient for me.

The moles are in the fields and also in the back garden- which adjoins the fields- but haven't yet worked their way round to the lawns at the front.
