  Sleep tight folks ... See you in the morning ...

Sorry I've Been AWOL

How lovely to hear from you DD ((hugs)) 

Quite understand your feelings - you must feel all over the place at the moment ((hugs)) .  All possible positive vibes are being sent post haste to the Dorgogne, marked For the Attention of Decision Makers regarding Chateau de Gateau !!!

On top of that our fingers are very crossed, which will make pricking out seedlings very difficult in a few days' time 

Lots of luck for everything, and don't forget ... you're doing my share of running too

Amberspy - glad you're taking it easy. Get well soon.  

I had a lovely chat over coffee/tea and biccies on the terrace this morning with gardening friend.  Since then the sun's gone in and a bitter wind has sprung up.  The rest of the day has been spent reading indoors.

You just cut a few pieces of twig/small branch and stick them in some damp soil and leave them alone.  They are almost guaranteed to root - even if you don't want them to.

Ants will only take up residence in a pot if the compost is on the dry side - has your tree had plenty of water?

A photo of the tree and pot would be helpful 

Damp Proof Liners in Raised Beds

Yes, you need something other than a fence at the back of the bed - it needs to be just as strong as the front otherwise it will damage the fence quite badly.  

Pond Leak

I would just empty it and use a flexible pond liner.  

Growing above a soakaway?

I believe that workers at sewage treatment works have been known to nurture the tomato plants that appear around the place ....... and presumably they then eat the fruits ........... no point in nurturing them otherwise 

Underground wasps' nest

It's  quite a narrow part of the bed ....... maybe they dried out last summer and autumn - I can't imagine wasps nesting in a damp area  ... and we've had a dry spring too.
