Eileen - there won't be any greenfly eggs in your compost - greenfly only lay eggs in the autumn - they hatch in the spring and from then onwards the greenfly reproduce by the unfertilised females giving birth to live young which then also reproduce themselves

Welcome Mrs Nesbitt 

What a lovely place you live and what a super project. 

Don't worry, we won't let you do too much at a time - we're great believers in 'gently does it' and 'sit back and enjoy looking at it'  from time to time.  

If you'd like to take some photos of the garden and post them on here, and tell us about the sort of garden you like, we can think about a step by step approach.  

To post pictures on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, and follow the instructions.  If it doesn't work let us know 

Help pls to ID

Is This Honey Fungus?

Chicken of the wood is delicious - there are also reports of morels in Norfolk, but I've never been lucky enough to track any down.  When I lived in Suffolk I had a source for Wood Blewits which were lovely too - the chap who gave them to me was such an expert - I'm very much a learner who grew up in the country with people who gathered mushrooms, and I've been on a few Fungi Forays.
