Giniagibbs , pallett collars are brill , I have had some given to me , great for carrots and plants that want a bit of protection at the moment , I sometimes put fleece over the top with drawing pins, it doesn't last more than one season but it is the cheap stuff from Poundland 

Not sure about Mizzuma will have to look it up

Dove , I hope your mum is comfortable 

Off to Lincoln  shortly , dry but very windy and bet it is very cold 

BL our garden club last year had a talk on wildlife in the garden including moles , he reckoned only way to stop them is poison , over hear it would have to done proffessionally

Have a problem at allotment but they have learnt to use the paths for there runs if one appears in a bed , watering can full poured done it then ram a stone in the hole , probably just luck that it had worked 

Have a good day everybody
