Geese would be better than goats - goats are more browsers than grazers, you'd lose all your shrubs and fruit bushes (just as Ma did when one of our goats escaped) - geese would go for the grass and leave larger leaves.

But otherwise mow as Nutcutlet advises, I've seen her primroses and whatever she does works just fine

Garden Rescue - TV Programme

Having spent many years in an art school environment, I regard criticism as part of life - a weekly 'Crit' is part of the timetable, with students presenting their work to fellow students and tutors for (hopefully constructive) criticism - and let me assure you, no holds are barred!  

Having left art school behind, many artists set up similar group events in order to keep their practice fresh.

As someone once said, 'I don't care what you say as long as you're talking about me and as long as you spell my name right.'

In the arts - and that includes tv and film - the worst thing in the world is to be ignored!

Please help -trying to find a rose called 'Our Jane'

Hello Claire, I'm so sorry for your loss.

I don't know the rose you want; my best suggestion is that you contact Classic Roses and enquire whether they know the rose you're after (sometimes they're known by more than one name).

Good luck.

Good morning all 

Returning to yesterday's theme, I have a qualification in castration, if that's of any use?

Hope Wonky's awake soon - there's a rainwater butt heading her way shortly! 

What's devoured my sunflower?

You need squirrel-proof feeders - they are much more expensive than the standard ones, but they will save you money in the long run as squirrels are very greedy and hoover up the expensive food you put out for small birds.  The pigeons will also be unable to get food from the squirrel-proof feeders

Anything like that is only going to be as good as the people who contribute the information - I've already seen one photo that looks wrong for the name of the plant, and there are typos too - not impressed.
