Unless you saw him doing something, your only remedy is to re-plant.

I'm sorry but in my view planting Leylandii is almost an aggressive act unless you really do intend to look after them.

Sounds awful to me. Like the difference between a ready meal and home cooked with fresh ingredients. How difficult is it to find a decent site selling bulbs and make your own choice?

If you put it in the compost straight away, you will spread moss everywhere you put compost. You can put it in rubble sacks or old compost bags until it is completely, completely dead and then use the resultant soil in the garden.

All depends what kind of moss it is. We have it on paths and the drive. When it dries out the blackbirds rake through it for worms.

Edd, sorry, but that looks a bit small for rat poo; or maybe they are baby rats.

If anybody catches a rat in a trap and they don't intend to kill it, what are they going to do with it next??

Wood post in concrete

If you decide to start again you can get metal cradles to hold wooden posts off the ground to stop them rotting. Or you can use Metaposts.

But your current method sounds good enough if you have used pressure treated timber, buried it deep enough and you are willing to apply wood treatment regularly.
