The photos I've seen of tomato hornbeam worms look very much like the lovely

Privet Hawk Moth caterpillars.

I don't get cupcakes - too much icing - not enough cake - they set my teeth on edge. 

What is this

Posted: 29/08/2016 at 11:51

It looks like a fern of some sort to me, but I have no idea whether it's hardy type or not - it may be tender and best used as a houseplant.

Hopefully someone will come along with more information. 

When to scarify...

...I eventually found an electric scarifier for 48 quid on Screwfix, and bought it after reading what were mostly excellent reviews. ...

 Just going to fetch mine from Screwfix a couple of miles away - cheaper than two hiring fees from Homebase - ordered online five minutes ago and just got a text to say it's ready to collect!

Thanks Des - good tip off    specially 'cos it's heavily reduced - don't know how long the reduction is for.

Just got to make room for it in the garage - we'll give the BBQ to son - one thing in, one thing out - them's the new rules 

Trees to hide electricity pylon?

You don't need a tree that tall to screen the pylon - because you're much shorter than the pylon, and a distance away, perspective means that a shorter tree will do the job.

Take a look at this site

Buzzards include slugs and worms in their diet Hosta, so they're probably tucking into your supplies
