An I right in thinking grass snakes aren't poisonous but may still bite?

Lawn edging

Or you could lay a length of timber baton sat just below the grass level, letting the grass creep over the top of it. That way you can mow over it and use edging shears against it. Not much use for curved edges though!

Singy, nice foxglove. They are my favourite plants, along with alliums, clematis & lupins. It could be worth you collecting the seeds and sowing for next year.

 First time Ive ever seen one in the flesh. Someone had placed some pieces of metal corrugated roofing panels in the grass, and I know snakes like to hide under them.

JAB with added JI is better than plain JAB which is very poor this year.

True. Ive had to mix my JAB with other compost, just to make it useable.
