Hi all, I noticed a few small piles of poos in some of my pots in the garden. Does anyone know what animal is the culprit please? Thanks!

    Those are wormcasts.

    Thanks Dove! Do I need to do anything to it? Or just leave it there please?

    It's a good sign. It'll sort itself if you leave it but you can spread it around a bit if you like.

    You can collect it and use it to make your own growing medium if you like ... but I doubt if you have enough to make it worth your while.  It is doing absolutely no harm and the worms are aerating the soil in your posts and improving the drainage so they're providing a benefit.
