I'm wondering whether it's the reduced light levels they don't like.  If you really want to grow these it might be worth considering heating that greenhouse.

Dd, one of our labs 'ate through a doorway', removing the architrave and door lining!  It was separation anxiety - a radio left on quietly on a talking channel, and my smelly old coat as a bed worked wonders.   Good luck - he'll be worth a bit of work

OH wants to know what I want for my birthday (end of Jan) - decision made - I shall give him a list of a few varieties of snowdrops I'd like and he'll order them 'in the green'   Perfick!!!

Flippin chilly here - just turned the heating up a bit. 

The birds have finished squabbling over the raisins and are all snuggling up in the neighbours' laurel and pyracantha hedges.

For several months the only green thing my toddler niece would eat was 'cumber - but eat it she did, morning noon and night.  After that she would eat 'cumber and carrot - a few months later it was 'cumber, carrot and Baby Gem lettuce with mayo ... she got there eventually.

But she's never been keen on potato - but her Daddy is a potato farmer and she knows just how to press his buttons LOL

I think it could be Clavulina cristata - White coral fungus

I don't think it'll do any damage.

I have never ever given my children a different meal to the grown ups - really really bad idea in my humble opinion.   It has meant that sometimes the grown ups have had to eat a milder curry than they would normally choose, but that's part of what being grown up is all about.

Part of my professional role was to support and advise re parenting issues.

You can get varieties of ivy with quite small close-growing leaves - I think they'd be ideal
