Small earth mounds on lawn

They could be molehills. If you clear away the soil you may find the hole that the mole pushed the soil you of.  I try to push as much of the soil as possible back into the run.

Dalhlias - winter care

You can split the tubers but each bit MUST have a bud.  It's easier to see in the spring when the new growth starts.  I take mine out of pots for the winter as I can check the tubers for Vine weevil grubs that love dahlia tubers and will eat them

I'd go for the darker one as it is older wood.  It would be worth a quick check to see how many branches it has higher up in case it leaves an odd shape.

Do not put nettle roots or seeds in as they can survive in homemade compost so you could end up spreading them around you garden

Some of my healthy looking courgettes are actually hollow.  There is no sign of any pest damage.  Does anyone know what may be the cause?
