Thank you Lin! Can you sex them if we send pics plz?

I have sent Paula the care sheet to read through and they are in very safe hands now 8-) the smaller seems to be more dominant, should we split them or see how they go?

Thanx x

Hi guys, just to let u know these guys r approx 5 and have been kept in a 3 ft Vivarium all there lives!

Re: Things are finally flowering!

Brilliant big thank you Lin :D I will remove the no feeds and leave what's ok, glad the toadflax is ok, I will only allow a small amount to grow through though as Tiny is a little piggie!!

I'm sure I'll be back soon, as I still have lots not flowering yet 8-) hehe x

Things are finally flowering!

Hi guys, we are getting used to our new garden! Speedy likes bramble and Tiny loves both the bindweeds, although both only moderate feeds I'm glad there trying new things. They are both doing really well and hate rainy days! Things are growing all over the place and I have no idea what anything is! ...

Hi to everyone on Facebook commenting...just for the record I did have a qualified electrician to run the wire and fit the outside plug socket for me! It was inside the shed and the bulb run off a thermostat. I always turn it off before I go anywhere but left in a rush and first time I didn’t do it,...

Re: Oh no...disaster!!

Hi guys, thank you for your kind words and continuing support. I did have a layer of cardboard on the bottom as it was a metal base and Speedy didn't like it, she wouldn't go in until I covered it. I have had so much to do I did not get round to filling it with dirt/sand. I did find broken glass pie...

Re: Oh no...disaster!!

The new space is only temporary but I think she likes it! I dug the grass back up and repotted it so it gives her somewhere to hide etc, she was busy exploring earlier today when the sun came out, but is snuggled in her cupboard now.

Hi guys, Before I start just want you to know Speedy is ok, probably still in shock but have had her checked and Vet seems happy with her. I returned home from shopping to find her shed on fire!

Re: Speedy's Outside enclosure

Yeah it's lovely!! I sat and watched her for ages and she spent all day in and out of it!! I think the move was the best thing for her, she seems very happy now and even takes herself outside when she's woken up! She never did that before! And all the lovely weeds are growing well and there's plenty...

Re: Tiny's new outside enclosure

Thank you ladies....my Nan did mention I should do this for a living!! The semi circle the cold frame is in, is our old pond filled in and my main aim is too half empty it and have the whole area for Tiny, as she is growing well and will need more room by next summer! I just wanted her outside asap!...
