Hedging and Horses

Berberis or pyracantha might put them off. Hawthorn or a native mix would make a good hedge and the birds would like it.

Which part has the oil to help Alzeimer's disease. Dove. This could be useful. Does it help other forms of dementia?

Thank you all. I'll make a big effort to get out there and de-leaf for a start.   

I'm relieved that you don't all say dig up and burn, which I'd feared you would.

It doesn't take long to get babies going Louise, look for them under the old leaves when you cut those off. They don't travel far from the parent, not here anyway.

Snowdrops, clump up extremely quickly and can be split up to make new clumps and the singles will seed

Old leaves still on because I haven't got round to removing them all Verdun

I'll get to it. I've done some of them.

Things have got a bit out of control here over the last couple of years. Big effort is being made now but a long way to go.

I'll give the hellebores priority. Thanks Verdun

Thanks Verdun, I don't want to scrap them. They're probably in the poorest soil of any of my hellebores, so I'll give them a treat

Would it be worth cutting the whole plant(s) back now before the new leaves come?

No black but distorted.

I had some like that last year but most of those are OK this.  It's my group of nearly black ones that are sick.

Not all of them, but some are distorted. But not black. Is this black death in its early stages do you think?

Thinking of growing a Cob Nut tree

I only see squirrels for a few weeks a year. Hazel nuts, walnuts, acorns, then they're off.

Except in a hard winter when they come for the peanuts
