You may well be right Pansyface - can you zoom in on the photo?  My laptop's being awkward today

Yes, it's a birds nest - possibly a robin's or blue tit.  I can't enlarge the photo.  Put everything back exactly as it was and keep away and keep your fingers crossed.

To fleece or not to fleece?

I agree with Pansyface. I follow her principled principle for my pear and my fig - not to mention my flowering goosegogs.
But I did fleece the frogspawn last week (embarrassed smiley ).

Hi Ambar , I'm afraid your citrus are suffering from the cold. They can't live outside in the UK except in the summer. Can you put them in pots and put them indoors to try to save them?

I know it sounds unlikely but is there any way it could be suffering from drought at the roots? Sometimes the flower buds will dry and either if the plant doesn't get enough water.

If Forkers are wondering where Pandas got to I suggest you watch the Marathon

Hawthorn Hedge: at the end of its life?

There are hawthorn hedges in existence that started out in Medieval times, but they do benefit from cutting hard back from time to time, or 'laying' in the traditional way. Google will show you lots of examples, I'm on my phone at the moment so links are difficult
