Rye pancakes, odd results, and cheap pan

If you buy another non-stick pan ensure you only use it on the lowest heat, they don't take kindly to high heat and they should last for years. If you want to use high heat buy a cast iron pan.

Beech makes a lovely hedge. Keeps its dead leaves until Spring.

I use the green shoots in cooking.

Help! How do I clean out my pond?

Do you have frogs or other wildlife? If you do, this is the worst possible time to clear out the pond as you will destroy both spawn and hibernating creatures.

Problems Storing Wellies

Yup, it already exists.

Compost again

Don't use the coal ash in compost or on the garden. It's fine to use for paths though.

Bird feeders

If they need the food, they'll come.

Make sure you take account of ground-feeding birds, but don't leave surplus food out or you will attract rats. You should not put out more food than they can clear up before nightfall.

Start them off with small amounts until they clear it all up.

As soon as they come into the shops for the biggest choice. But keep them frost-free but cool until a bit later

February is considered the best month, but yes, any month.

fig tree

There is nothing so delicious as a sun-ripened fig that you have managed to keep from the birds or wasps.

I'll fight you for them, Dove! I beat off a hornet so I could eat a fig at Aberglasney Garden in Carmarthenshire.

The joy of UK figs is that they don't have seeds, just wonderful flesh. Yum.

PS I do think you are mad to get rid of a bearing fig tree.
