Pansy ((hugs)) I'm so sorry you're being faced with such tough stuff at the moment. 

I hope your love of plants helps to give your life meaning, as mine has for me at the grimmest of times.

I think you've earned a big slice Wonky! 

Is it really a problem?

The reason you see old pictures of farmhands with binder twine around the bottoms of their trouser legs was to stop the rats "runnin' up 'em"

But once the wood chips have been broken down the nitrogen returns to the soil, along with the other constituents, so any nitrogen depletion is only short term. I would only be concerned if wood chips were being dug into a brassica bed or similar.

At the rate the robins and bluetits are gathering moss from our back lawn today, there won't be any left in a few days' time

Now a robin is gathering moss from the edge of the back lawn 

Tree Stump

You can cut it as low down to the ground as possible and then hire a stump grinder to grind the main stump out - they're no bigger than a petrol rotary mower and can be hired from most tool hire and DIY places.

The birds are really getting on with the nest building today -the  robin has been hopping along the fence with a length of dead clematis stem in his beak, blackbirds are pulling mud from the pond edge and a pair of bluetits are busy going in and out of the nest box on the ash tree trunk. 

Ive just stopped for lunch and am enjoying The Now Show - it is such a good programme
