Best time is Autumn, but possible in early Spring. Dig up the clump, they usually fall apart when you do, choose the newest pieces. Refresh the soil with compost and replant.

Go to a Farm Outlet type emporium and buy yourself a couple of Mole traps, the scissors type. Try to find a run by probing the ground and set the trap in the run. Wear gloves as they can smell your hands on the trap. In an area that size you will only have one mole by the way, they are solitary animals.

As for the soil, then yes collect up the stones and glass and if you can sieve out the majority of them from the soil.

Hard work, but it is possible, we sifted over 200 tons of soil to clean it up.

Can someone kindly ID this for me please

It had absolutely no effect on my broken toe, which took nearly 5 months to mend.

Too wet? Overfed? This Crab apple only seems to produce fruit every other year for us.

Any information helpful!

There is a Variegated form and a double Variegated form mentioned in the Plant Finder.

Here we go again, another wander round the old homestead. Tried to take different angles this time, but not easy.

Not really, they are fairly bomb-proof. Some of them are really hardy too. They can stand some frost as long as they are dry. I keep mine in an unheated very well ventilated greenhouse over winter and they seem to survive, even during the really cold winters of a couple of years ago.

There are a fair number of different ones available these days too.
