Our first animal joined us guerrilla gardening last night.  A beautiful black dog  kept watch as the owner dug away, and kept watch for any unsavoury characters.  If you've been accompanied by any animals please share them here.  I'm particularly keen to learn of any elephants or tigers that have been guerrilla gardening with you.  Gorillas however are not welcome, they confuse people.

I had two hedgehogs accompanying me on a sunny afternoon last autumn, in the playground where I have my main flowerbed. But mainly they were just lying among the flowers, basking in the sun. Lazy bastards, I had to do all the digging myself...

I'm really sorry for you. A good dog is a true friend. Freja died five years ago, and I still dream about her.

Noooooooooo! Hedgehogs are nocturnal. If they are out in the sun they are sick and need help.

If you disturbed them from a shelter then they should have gone running off to find somewhere else to hide, they certainly shouldn't hang around like that. Please, find out if there is a rescue & rehab near you so that if you come across any more you can get them seen to.

I can assure you they were quite alright, I was exaggerating to tell a funny story. They were sleeping under a hedge a few metres away from where I was standing. I know exactly where to find help for hedgehogs in my area and would have called if there was a problem  Smiley

These wallflowers are coming on, in fact are better looking than these pics demonstrate. I need to get newer pics.

Sadly it's not always weed killer that destroys....



This oak tree was planted in March.

Then one day a dog uprooted the tree and bit the bark off; we replanted the tree but I don't think it will survive....



...does anybody else have this problem in their city?

@ flower43

Some sickos in my town (Malm?, Sweden) toss their figting dogs up in trees to train their jaws, resulting in damaged trees and damaged dogs.

RIP guerrilla gardening dog 1   Sad

Anyway, I cut back the wallflowers and put some tulips (reduced, on sale) in. Included in the photo is a tip to start a mini frog pond, in an attempt to control my slug and snail problem......

with my best gardening dungarees on,(padded knees, the best thing ever) I planted out a few self seeded wallflowers to this location. The originals, which had survived, have gone to seed, so here's hoping..... Grin

Very amusing. Some people (hedgehogs) are quite content to let somebody else do it.

we've recycled a new dog for guerrilla gardening distraction purposes, an official decoy, if you will...

That's a good idea. My dog would certainly stop folk asking me questions about my digging. Normally I can't dig in the garden without him joining in.

Not only have the wallflowers survived, they have really come on better than I expected.

This thread  has been somewhat sidetracked by wallflowers and such...but the dog was with me when I planted them, and his original home was barely a cocked leg from the location!!!!  Wink
