I like it when they sit chewing and spit out the legs

If I sit still they'll sit on me to do that

Not good for insects Dave? I thought it would be with that open centre.

I won't have those if that's the case.

Are yours being visited by insects OL?

My fushia looks 'woody'

Hi Lynsey. Fuchsias are shrubs, their stems are woody, especially if they don't get cut back in spring

You can post photos by starting with the tree in the tool bar, above where you type, and working from there. It won't work from phones though

I think that's what it is OL but I haven't grown them for years. Nice. I might get some next year

Please could someone tell me what this is?

Can we see the shrub, the shape of it. 

It might be ash or almost anything that has 5 or more leaflets

In days gone by it would have been put on the garden.

If there are any bugs in there they must be all yours after 4 years. No worries. Here in the sticks we have septic tanks and a much closer relationship with it all 

Keep the manhole where you can get at it, covering it with soil is always a poor choice. (I realise that wasn't you)

Dragonflies eat insects Bizzie, they don't have nectar sucking euipment.

They catch hundreds of small flying things.

Low growing wildlife lawn?

I think I'd use small plants then you know where they are and can remove the plants you don't want. (stinging nettles etc) You could grow them yourself to plant out later or buy plugs depending on the budget.
