That's so sad - there's nothing more worthwhile in my opinion - and bdooly tough work too and needs people with a brain, tenacity and common sense.  My daughter works for Mencap - she and the majority of her colleagues are graduates.

 I'm afraid it doesn't work for phones - yet!

Help my hedge is dying

I'm afraid that's as good as it's going to get   Cupressus don't like their sides being trimmed more than a fraction.  

I can see why you wanted its width reduced - it's taking up a lot of your garden. 

What about getting rid of them and having a tall trellis fence and covering it with evergreen clematis and some roses or something like that?  You'd get the privacy without it using almost all of your garden.  

Holy glyphosate, Batman! What's that?

That's not going to get that tall, only 1.5m or so.

There's some info on storing maincrop potatoes here  http://www.gardenfocused.co.uk/vegetable/potatoes/potatoes-harvest-store.php 

By my rough calculations you will need to grow approx 6 metres long of potato rows for every  25kg of potatoes.

I think that storage of main crop potatoes through the winter will be a major difficulty, unless you have a dark and  cool but frostfree shed available.

That's a lot of potatoes.
