Need advice for newly planted tomato seeds

Before you do anything, decide how many plants you realistically need and take out the extras.  Then proceed as above.

Using old bricks to disguise a turf stack?

I would forget the bricks and just move in some pots of plants to put in the front of the pile.  You will be glad you kept the pile when it has all rotted down.

Why don't you try Real Seeds next year.  They positively encourage people to save seeds.  Look at their site.

If you remove the female flowers how are you going to get courgettes?  Many male flowers will grow before the females get into their stride.  Patience is often required. You will not get any fruits unless the female flowers are fertilized; they will remain underdeveloped until they rot and fall off.

Weed or Flower

Digging out is the only answer to brambles.  The re-growth from any roots left behind is weak and easily dealt with.  Herbicides will only weaken a bramble, not kill it.

I don't understand why you object to ferns.  They enhance any area.  Bracken is another matter.

Good luck.
