I had an excellent kitchen garden and the first thing the new owners did was put their goats in it!

Any idea what this is?..

Wait and see. Spring will be along anytime soon.

Tetley, what do you mean 'tell the kids not to touch'. Notice? Stand there for days on end warning them?

You do know that legally if you tell anybody about a potential problem, you are entirely liable if they hurt themselves?

You don't have to mention anything in pots as they are moveable, but anything in the ground has to be noted.

Wear long trousers and wear your socks outside. Wear long sleeves. This only applies when you are working in vegetation as ticks like to hitch a lift on passing warm-blooded animals.

Michael, that sounds very complicated. But each to their own.

If the hedge grows too quickly, prune it or trim it. Most of us on this site try to garden without unnecessary chemicals. Am I right?

Do not be tempted to 'tidy' up the magnolia further. They don't react well to pruning.

Do not contemplate a brick wall. Very expensive. Plants are a good filter.

The best way to prevent this happening is to start the sets off in modules. As soon as the sets have sturdy shoots and good roots the birds will leave them alone when you plant them out.

For now, cover the sets with fleece until they are anchored in the soil.
