Pansy ((hugs))  I do think that good neighbours far outnumber the bad ones - I hope that your current neighbour is very happy in her new home, and that her replacements follow her example

Growing flowers

The strawberry leaves are last years and like us they show their age.  It'll grow lovely fresh green healthy ones in the spring/summer

Those stones are fine - you don't need to get rid of them - they aid drainage.  Anyway if you did get rid of them the action of rain etc would mean that more would work their way to the top.  You don't want garden soil that looks like the contents of a compost bag

And sieving won't get rid of tiny weed seeds.  Patient hand weeding is the way in that bed.

Chicky   a catalogue of hostas???? Does his OH know?  He could acquire a whole collection of them

Hope that ankle is better soon.

Pdoc I think the answer is to plan friendly snowdrop walks incorporating sticky cake and coffee/tea

also we should be organising those seeds we didn't get around to sowing last year, and ordering some more

and most important - get Fg to wave her wand to arrange fine spring weather from St David's Day onwards

Dividing Clematis

I'd be careful - damage low down on the plant is how Clematis Wilt infection strikes.

I'd rather take cuttings/layers.
