Glad to hear such good news LilyP A good vet is worth his/her weight in gold
Slit in the ground = slit trench .... the second link I posted above
It's the way I do it
Pattypan squashes - just two plants
Taste like courgettes, more tender, lovely roastedas well as cooking like ordinary courgettes. Very productive and interesting to look at.
Here's a pic of white Sweet Rocket in the veg patch earlier this year - as you can see, the same thing happened with a foxglove plant too

No idea which that is, but unless there is a huge infestation I tend to leave such things for the birds and wasps etc to sort out.
I'm a little concerned by the inference in your question that butterflies = good and moths = bad
Is that what you meant?

Have a look here http://www.gardenersworld.com/how-to/grow-plants/how-to-take-rose-cuttings/
and here http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/gardeningadvice/8822851/Make-a-slit-trench-for-hardwood-cuttings.html
I usually use the slit-trench method. Don't worry about the cuttings losing their leaves.
As for hydrangeas, I find the best way is to prepare your cuttings, take off most of the leaves, and cut the top leaves in half, thus reducing moisture loss. I then put the cuttings in a jamjar of water and pop them on a shady windowsill in the kitchen and leave them there. After several weeks they begin to grow roots. When the roots are several inches long I separate the cuttings and pot them up.
Good luck with the toad Liri

I like whistling men
Oh Dove really. Do you wolf whistle men or do you like men who can whistle?
Don't be ridiculous - I didn't say 'whistling at men' and I wasn't talking about offensive sexist behaviour, as you know perfectly well.
