I don't know, but from what I've read I believe that sensible bee-keepers are perhaps more open-minded than they used to be, given the problems facing traditional beekeeping recently.  This link looks interesting http://www.bee-friendly.co.uk/

I was once given a similar contraption, it was green and had a footplate above the horizontal bar at the bottom - I was told you had to stand on it to get the prongs into the ground - shame I wasn't as heavy then as I am now  - it was jolly hard work - I didn't get custody of it - I wonder what the ex did with it  he certainly doesn't tend his lawn with it

I agree with Bob - a clear and concise explanation - the fruiting body of the potato.

 

Can you identify this for me please?

Potatoes grow tubers from the stem if those are buried (or partially so) and tubers turn green then purple on exposure to sunlight.  I think that's what has happened here.

I agree - small potatoes.

My viburnum Bodnantense has been flowering in the past few weeks, instead of waiting for midwinter, so it could be one of those.

A few random questions :)

I leave it alone until the leaves have gone brown and withered, then I pull them off.  You might like to remove the seedheads tho, to stop it self seeding.
