Use it all the time - great stuff! The only reason that I know that could cause a problem is applying it neat or not dilute enough which could burn the roots and cause harm. However you have the dilution rate spot on and I see no reason why it should only do good to your plants.

The marks on your pear tree are unconnected in my opinion. These marks are pear rust.

If you want to find out more about hedgehogs I can recommend a great book I am reading at the moment which dispells a lot of myths and explains alot too.

Hi, birds don't mind what quality your feeders are only that they are kept clean. It is really important to regularly wash them with hot soapy water in order for disease not to build up on them which can cause diseases to spread between birds and across species.

Offer different types of seed and see what comes in - whole sunflower seeds or sunflower hearts are popular with a large range of birds. Peanuts behind mesh (baby birds can choke on whole peanuts) will also bring in different birds - I get woodpeckers on mine.

By offering food in different ways you will also increase the types of birds in your garden  - hanging feeders; bird table; scattering food, scraps, fruit on the ground.

In winter or when the weather is cooler - grated cheese and  fat balls are two other things to try.
