Hello Little owl (from the time you're posting, you seem well-named). 

What about explaining to the neighbours that you grow some plants that could be dangerous to small children so thought it would be wise to let them know so they can  keep their child within their own garden.  People who know nowt about gardening are frequently terrified of the dangers of foxgloves and other such plants

Good morning all G'day Pat

It has been a bit of an eye opener since Wonky joined the forum - I am constantly impressed by her - she appears to be a grown up of good sense and sound judgement - how did that happen?  It's not five minutes ago that she was smuggling her pet rabbit into bed with her and snuggling up with her blankie

Poor Hefty



Removing existing wood stain on fencing

Otherwise your alternative is to wait a few years until the dark stain has faded, then you can stain your fence the lighter colour that you prefer - that's what we did.  Just had to be patient.

Looks like Salix caprea aka goat willow to me.

Either there were some stray seeds in the packet, or more likely, some were blown/drifted on the breeze onto the surface of the compost in the pot. 

I'd get rid of them unless you have several acres to plant them in.

They're one of the few trees I'd not be keen on having on my boundary Verdun - but even if they were the most awful trees, there's absolutely no excuse for such appalling rudeness
