I have never grown giant ones, I will sow Bedfordshire Champion beginning of March.

Like Baza, I wouldnt want to show, just use to cook with. I did try sets last year as well as seeds, even though dad said seeds are best, and of course, he was right again, why dont I listen!

Wikipedia says that moles will also eat 'a variety of nuts' - that might be your answer.

They will be well fed if they come to our house Dove, more than a few nuts here 

They are starting activity here, but they wont last long!

What size cut are those battery mowers please?

I have a Wolf(I think) cordless strimmer, wont do the edges of the garden in one go, then not very good, cost well over £100.00 so I am put off by battery toys.

WW, sorry for your loss, our mums belonged to the war generation, they were a very special lot. Brought up with hardship, no point in asking for anything, they wouldnt have got it if they did. They carried that right through their lives but gave to us everything they could. 

Some lovely poems here, Grans and Clares, thank you.
