You should never mulch right upto the stem or trunk of a plant because the mulch will hold onto water and it will slowly rot the stem or trunk.

Trying to find what animal is visiting my garden

I have a outside camera my husband bought it for me a few years ago I also wanted to see which animals visited my garden at night. 

It is called Outback Cam by Swann, I had a problem at first setting it up but the support team for Swann where brilliant and as usual I found I was doing something really stupid.

This was took with the camera Also my logo was took with the camera.

Plant ID please

Yes they should be OK to eat, but not yet. You need to bring the soil up aroud them so the potato tubers don't go green in the sun. They are inedible if they are green so the soil will stop this happening.

They are really easy to grow, enjoy.
