Swedes are pretty cheap and they grow best in a field, so let the farmer grow them for you.

If the tree in the latter picture is old rather than young it may be on dwarfing rootstock so it should be permanently staked.

Man and chain-saw, saw or choppers - bad combination!

Sycamore with tar spot shedding leaves into my garden

This is typical of sycamores. Just one of the reasons I dislike them. I don't think they will harm your ornamental Acers. It's also OK to use the leaves to make leafmould.

runner beans

I would stick with a packet of new runner bean seeds. By all means experiment with keeping the roots for another year, but don't rely on them coming through the winter and producing a good crop.

Willow Hedge (I think)

Willow Hedge (I think)

Willow can be cut back to the ground and it will spring up again. February is usually recommended, but sometimes there is no temptation to go out in the garden and hack at willows when it is miserable weather. If it is a common sort of willow it will be indestructible.

Any twigs you poke into the ground will form roots if you need any more willow plants.

dog proofing a leylandii hedge

It is your neighbour's responsibility to fence in their own animals. All the expense of the fence should fall on them. They cannot ask you to sacrifice your hedge. If a fence is required they must put it on their land/garden.
