Don't worry about the photo of the damage; OH and I were dairy farmers, and can you imagine what they did to our fields? I know they were only looking for food but the mess was awful!

And laburnum and rhododendron and hundreds of other plants. Do not get paranoid about the plants in the garden, except for the deadly ones. Monkshood and datura (Angels Trumpets) are certainly ones to avoid.

Above all supervise your young children in the garden and teach younger and older ones not to eat anything without asking.

Not sure of the scale of your photo, but next year I think I would space the rows a bit further apart.

Germination times

I never leave them until they are 2" long as I would be nervous of damaging them. I transfer them as soon as its obvious they have germinated. About 1/8".

And the lower the better - or they will dig under it!

Have you tasted the leaf?

Germination times

I always germinate sweetcorn on damp kitchen paper in a closed container at room temperature. 100 percent success with certain seed suppliers.

Examine them every day and as soon as you see the root shoot emerge put the seed gently with tweezers into a pot of compost or a RootTrainer or compost-filled toilet roll and cover lightly with compost.

Gardening teaches you patience. Just wait.

Block paving - How do I weed it?

Have you tried pouring a kettle of boiling water on the weeds? Very eco-friendly.

New path a lot higher than grass level

It's a bit difficult to see, but is the path well below the damp-proof course? If not you will get bad damp problems in the house. I wonder if the path is too high.

If the path was laid professionally you need to get the people back to relay the path. Then you can get it laid at the correct height.
