Hedges

My goodness, I would not suggest it with a conifer hedge. First step would be to find out what it consists of. Unfortunately posters rarely give us enough information.

Rural, town, suburban? Conifer, deciduous? Varieties? Height? Berried? Slow-growing? Etc, etc.

The hedges in the farmers' environmental schemes in Wales are cut back to ground level, and they all spring up again. Virtual coppicing in effect. When they reach a suitable height they can be cut and laid if that's what you want or otherwise kept in check.

Silly question of the day!

Perhaps our lot don't speak welsh! But you can set your watch by them as they fly over to their roost.

Dove, I am frequently over-flown by pretty massive flocks of starlings, and they take off and fly silently! But my goodness they chatter noisily in the trees.

You mention hay; buttercup is also poisonous and thistle is not nice in hay.

Thistle & Ragwort control in wildflower meadow

As Ragwort is a biennial you will have to do it two year's running, but pulling it up really is the best method of getting rid of it.

Do it a bit at a time and burn it. It will continue to mature to seeding so put it in black bags until you burn it.

Make sure it is in acid soil.

Apple Day

This weekend there will be two Apple days at the National Botanic of Wales. A chance to identify those apples you're not sure about. There will be the customary display of apples; lots of which I'm sure you won't even have heard of.

Poisonous Plants

My goodness, you don't even mention the dangers of cars, buses and trains!!

Slate chipping

I think it's good if it fits in the overall design. One advantage is that it's too heavy for cats to dig in.

Certainly not slippery in my experience.
