Moira someone somewhere is going OTT!  I don't imagine the children are going to eat the plants are they?

I'm not sure what you mean by toxic.  Most country children survive surrounded by "toxic" plants.

I have to say your post actually makes me rather cross.  Perhaps your pupils would be safer in a concrete yard!

Unless the cut-worm has got at them.  They're pretty quick.

For some other seeds I lick my finger, take a dab of seeds and place them on the compost.

pond problem

I think it's just algae.  I think it will disappear when the pond is more in balance.
