Found a Toad in the greenhouse
« on: May 05, 2024, 11:39 »
Will it do any harm, or do I have to evict it?
I thought it was a gnarly stone and thought I'd just drop it outside, when it moved I was  :wacko:

I have a few around in the garden and at least 1 usually moves into the greenhouse over the summer months. 


The only damage they cause as such is sometimes they make themselves a little hole to sit in on top of a pot so they can be down in the damp compost.  That can squish a few leaves depending on how well fed and rotund your toad happens to be  :lol:  If you have a pot saucer with some water in tucked away in a corner, they use that instead.

Good to hear they'll eat any slugs - I'll put a saucer in the corner under the bench :)

Hopefully Fred won't realise we have a lodger  :lol:

Lucky you, MoS.  I have a resident frog, who was waiting by the greenhouse door to be let in when the weather turned cold in the winter. I think he's vacated the premises for the time being now though, but hopefully your toad will settle in and make himself useful by eating all the pests that you don't want on your plants.
