LAWN SCARE!!

Help please - my lawn is being attacked.  Is this bird damage or should I be looking at some kind of treatment for the lawn,  This has happened over the past two days; the lawn is quite dry and so there is plenty of thatch for the birds to grab hold of, if bird damage is what it is,  if so why just my lawn?  Hope the photo is ok!

I have two of these fuschias growing in pots and they have made a wonderful show - I need to move them into the ground to use the pots for autumn planting.  They are still flowering well; should I wait until the flowers have finished before moving them or can I do it now?

The result of taking your advice - thank you!  More flowers this year than ever and the leaves are regaining their colour.

Bookertoo - thank you for your advice.  A tall fence provides some shelter and the tree is the 'centrepiece' of  the new raised bed,  so I shall persevere!!

Andrea 3 - good luck with your tree - it will look splendid in your planter.

Thanks again

Noticed this morning - a recently planted tree (less than 2 weeks) has developed brown leaves at the tips of the branches - could the recent hot weather be the cause?   In a raised bed and well watered  (or so I thought) when it was planted and watered regularly since - but could it need even more?   Should I give it a really good soaking? 

Thank you

Thank you for your response - all the information I needed!  West facing in the shade of the acer will be the new home -  man with sack truck arriving tomorrow to help move it into placeI   The camellia in its container has done very well over the years, so I hope it tolerates the move!

Thank you once again.

I have a white camellia that has been growing in a pot for several years; it's now too large/heavy to move around.   I'd like to plant it in the garden - your advice please, on the best location.   There are two areas with enough room, one quite large and open, until recently home to a silver birch, that gets the sun for most of the day, the other in dappled shade from an acer with wisteria and honeysuckle growing nearby.  Also how best to prepare the planting area, when to do it and how to provide protection in winter.   Apologies, lots of questions - hope you can help.  Thank you.
