MIne went through winter well last year (I suspect as it was mild and I am down South) and I have 10" high seedlings that searching online suggests I should move in Spring?

I don't know but our newly planted mountain ash did similar last year and had no flowers or berries at all, this year it has done much better. I suspect it is partly to do with newness and establishing itself.

You can also reduce hunting by making sure that cats wear at least two bells on a collar or one of the ultrasonic devices to alert possible prey animals.

Pond has some plants in, I have had one of my (thankfully) intermitted back issues so it is briefly on hold!

So what should we be doing with our grass right now?
