If they're not in the house why worry? Protect your seeds and bulbs and let the natural world get on with life. What sick individuals would use glue traps?

Foxes are less annoying in the garden than children. They deserve our protection, I am so fed up with people moaning about wildlife.

Hi, I have a cherry tree (Lapin) on Gisela 5 rootstock as I wanted to have a small tree, does anyone know if it would be suitable for fan training please, or would I have to have one on a larger rootstock?

Many thanks

I hadn't thought about the stems being broken - they are all just bent, so I'll do as you suggest and stake them. I was surprised they were so flimsy but the rain was very hard and there's a lot of topgrowth. What a pain this year has turned out to be!

Hi - in the recent torrential rain my red dogwood in an island bed has been trashed and is now half it's height and won't stand upright again. Is it too late to cut all the bent stems (about half the shrub) hard back or shall I stake it? I don't want to kill it off but it can't stay as it is as it looks horrendous and is shading out a lot of lawn. Any ideas please?

Hi - can anyone help please with the soil type for these bulbs. I plan to soak them for 24 hours before planting but into what? Should it be gritty, JI no 3, leaf mould or just ordinary compost? I am moving and just bought some half price bulbs and want to put them in pots awaiting final transplanting later in the year. Should I add some bonemeal? I haven't had much luck with them in the past so this is my final shot! Many thanks
