Hi I do hope you can help, we have several fully mature silver birch trees which are dropping hundreds of catkins every day, we have a koi pond and are worried the catkins could do them harm, so my question is How long do they drop catkins and will they harm our beloved koi??? Thank you x

I have several mature silver birch trees and the bark on them is dirty looking, any way I can restore them to the peeling clean papier charm??

It was the traders and stall hoders I felt sorry for, all the ones I spoke to were complaining about the ever increasing rent thay had to pay....and they wernt breaking even any longer...this is why there were far fewer stalls and plants for sale, so sad as it was an event I really looked forward to every year. Stacey your doing the right thing believe me! x
