You don't give any details, but strawberries are full hardy so it is usual to leave them in the ground, where they are to grow next year.

Saving tom seeds...

If you look on the Real Seeds site it tells you precisely how to gather them.  I have done it.  I think the toms have to be ripe.  Green toms will ripen if you give them enough time.

I just wrote 'Spamming on the site' after clicking the 'Report to Moderator' button on a Forum, and Lo! the spams are gone.  Just like that!

apple tree

I might be inclined to remove the blossom - carefully.  It is, I think an apple that tends to get into biennial fruiting.  

The blossom for next year will already be in the buds, so keep your fingers crossed.

Could be rats or mice?

Very poorly Rowan

You mention nourishment, but now is the wrong time to feed the tree is that is what you intend to do.  I am prejudiced against sycamore trees, so I would be inclined to blame that!  Rowans are not trees that will put up with much competition, they are not very strong-growing trees.

'Last week' is too late in the year to feed deciduous plants; they are about to go into hibernation.  New lush growth is very vulnerable to frost damage.

Look at the Orange Pippin site.  Visit an Apple Day, they are all around the country.  Avoid Cox's Orange Pippin, it is one of the most 'challenging' (that is difficult) varieties.

Cut out the branches you don't want.  Are you remembering to pinch out the shoots at five or six leaves, each year, before the end of June?

Red Filbert

Do not feed your filbert; it is pointless and wasteful to feed any plant that sheds its leaves in Autumn at this time of year.

If the filberts are ripe I would pick them before the squirrels find them.
