Matty, yes woottens really are,top notch.   ,I buy from Ashwoods too for hellebores but  woottens are excellent for those too.  I had a yellow variety last year...ordered it few months before for,sprimg delivery.  It came in a 5 litre instead of 3 litre because plant I wanted was unavailable in the smaller size.  Same price, just huge and wonderful flowers.  They tell you day before when it's coming.  No GC will sell that quality.

Allotment Max, send that crumble my way!  

Busy, not going anywhere it here

Orange Tree Care

My only experience of citrus is with lemons.  I,have a lemon tree that produces lemons.  My second year with it.

Ngcards, it looks like over watering to me.  Have you had it long?  Maybe its still adjusting to the move and change in conditions.  Amd agree with flowerimg rose, it won't like central heating if you have it on

Currently my lemon is outside in a pot and has thrived.  It enjoys being outside in the summer red spider for example....and indoors in winter.  Mine will stay outside for few weeks yet.  A citrus feed now and then but not too much water over winter I think. Lovely flower scent.  Nice lemons.

Rabbits, pottie, used to be a bit of a problem for me.  Mostly my garden is walled but the odd rabbit used to come in from next door's open garden.  I put in a discreet chicken wire fence that is now obscured by plamts.  No more rabbits.

My dear  old dog, spike, used to catch them ...never kill them.  It's not his way.....and gently hold them in his mouth and I would take them to the Towans behind me.  Once a rabbit got Imto my back garden and hid in my pea patch.  I quickly assembled a square of cloche sheets around the peas....the silly bunny just stayed in there whilst I did that!.....and then I looked for him.  Nowhere to be seen. At last, there he was nestled in bottom corner, same colour as the soil, and absolutely still.  Again, he was destined to the Towans.  Why did the Almighty create such loveable gentle creatures to be such pests?

No way to break up that concrete?  Can it lever out?
