I think I'd take the initiative and put my own fence up along there - good fences make good neighbours.

Brother supplies Waitrose, M&S, Tesco, Sainsbugs etc.  He said none of them would accept carrots that aren't in perfect condition.  They'd be sent back to him and he'd lose his contract.  Something's going wrong somewhere - you're in North Essex aren't you?  Brother's a bit north of you ...

Are they adjusted properly?  Have you tried setting them and then pressing the pressure plate with a (longish) stick?

Garden edging

I'm really not keen on the look of it, and I still carry the scar from when I was weeding a garden I'd just 'moved to' and a piece of old metal lawn edging attacked me - and I'm talking 40+ years ago! 

I don't edge my borders and beds - how would I enlarge them to accomodate my increasing purchases?

Glad you had a lovely outing KEF   It's obviously Helebore Day - I've posted some pics of mine (including Betty R) on the Garden Picture thread

whats gone wrong??????????

If the weather is cold they're better off not being watered.  A lot of plants can cope witih cold and dry, it's cold and wet that kills them.
