Sugs and snails

Hi David 

That sounds really annoying!  Just thinking off the top of my head at the moment - plenty of wildlife down there in Cornwall (we holiday down there regularly).  Are there any deer in your area?  Have you looked for footprints/tracks?

Over what period of time have these losses occurred?

HELLO FORKERS!

That reminds me very much of Pellitory of the Wall, a nettle relative. Strange place for it to grow though, it could well be something else entirely!

That's exactly what I was thinking of Landgirl, but for the life of me I couldn't think what it was called.  It grew all over the front garden at our last place. 

How to protect container grown fruit tree's from too much rain?

It will only harm them if they get waterlogged. If the pots are draining there's no need to worry

As long as the pots are draining well there's no need to cover the soil.  It might help to raise the pots up on pot feet or bricks or tiles or some such things, making sure that you don't block the drainage holes.  That will help the drainage holes to work.

Not now Steve, not unless you're 100% certain there's no birds nesting in it!
