I agree, beech or hornbeam would be lovely there - or holly

But yes, you'll have to replenish the soil first.

Can I divide watermelon seedlings?

Never having grown watermelons I've no idea how much they'll dislike it, but I'd do it anyway - growing so closely together will impair their growth so I'd go ahead, do it quickly and gently - I reckon they'll be fine

Alternatively couldn't you suspend home-wrecker from the ceiling in a cage? 

Just a thought ............... I'll get my coat .......................

Well, you'll move him out and you might drown his offspring - but if he's found somewhere nearby that provides him with food, he'll stay around - he'll just find somewhere else to live.  I think I'd leave the hole alone and show it to the rat man/woman when they come to lay the baits - you'll give them a chance to identify the rats' usual 'rat runs'etc.

Good luck

Fidget, you probably didn't mean to ........... but you've made me cry ............. that really is the lovliest news

Thank you all for your kind messages and thoughts - today went very well - Ma did well, some confusion but some awareness of what was going on and some appropriate tears - lots of attention from family and friends - and she enjoyed singing the hymns - I must say that her grand daughters were all absolutely wonderful with her

Hello Wonky and welcome aboard - you seem very familiar

Old hedges

As has been said, cut the hedge back hard to rejuvenate it - give it some Fish Blood & Bone to feed it - and it will grow away strongly. 

In future try to clip it to an 'A'  shape - wider at the bottom than the top - that way you'll get a lovely 'fat bottom' to your hedge with no gaps!
