The molehills in the garden

?? This is the period of molehills. Did you know? The mole is a valuable gardener’s helper. It feeds on earthworms but also garden undesirables: white grubs, slugs, beetles or even subterranean mealybugs. Its network of galleries between 15 and 30 cm deep allows the soil to be aerated, increases its draining power and enriches it by participating in the transfer of nutritive or chemical elements. All you have to do is wait a week before spreading the small mounds or reusing this good soil for sowing, planting, repotting or for indoor plants. If the molehills are annoying in the garden, it is possible to keep the mole away by placing dog or cat hair in the galleries.
