sambucus black lace cutting back? confusing advice

Posted: 28/05/2015 at 06:49

Hi Ninio

You'll need to tell us a bit more about your elderberry bush - is it in sun or shade?  Does it get much water or is the soil naturally dry?  What are the garden temperatures? When did you cut it back and how far?

Most of us are UK based so you'll have to help us with added information if we're to advise you

No, don't colourwash - stick to the yoghurt, paint them all over and leave them in a shady corner - preferably one where there's already some mossy growth.

Good morning all

Yes, we've got teenage starlings hanging around - and if we're not out in the garden they steal the mealworms - I suppose they don't understand they're for the baby robins

Have a good day folks

Clari ((hugs)) definitely due - I take it you have a Board of Trustees or similar???  Do you have to deliver an annual report???    But in the meantime, lots of luck and positive vibes heading your way, and more ((hugs)).

At the moment I'm trying to advise/mentor someone applying for arts project funding ... the requirements seem to change daily

Securing an unstable dry stone wall?

Posted: 27/05/2015 at 20:20

Even if the farmer doesn't own the wall and isn't responsible for repairing it, it is still his responsibility to keep his cattle fenced securely on his property. 

It is not Louise's responsibility to keep his cattle off her land.

Good one Hosta   Everybody happy (ish) and they 'owe you one' for the future

Verdun - no you hadn't told us that ................. the result is, I take it,  of course, a foregone conclusion ?

Securing an unstable dry stone wall?

Posted: 27/05/2015 at 19:47

It's the farmer's responsibility to keep his cattle in his field.  If you're concerned that the wall is insecure make sure he knows.  Also make sure he knows that your young children play in the garden, explain that young cattle are naturally curious creatures and they seem attracted to your garden when your children are playing there. 

Explain that rather than risk harm, injury and damage to your family and your property, you're giving him the chance to secure his boundary with proper cattle-proof fencing or substantial repairs to the wall. 

You could also mention that your understanding of insurance matters is that, if he has been made aware of problems with the wall and does nothing, his insurance company may not pay out on any public liability claims and he may be personally liable.

You can say all that in the friendliest of ways, but still get your point across.
