What apple are these?

Or crab apples - raw.

Identify this tree please

Those look like Cornus leaves. There are many varieties of C Kousa. I suggested that Cornus because the books say it has good Autumn colour.

Good luck with your quest. Perhaps you can come back on the board with a photo when it flowers. That would help us to be definitive.

Ah, it sounds like Autumn fruiting. The sticks should have been cut down, but so long as you are treating it well, enjoy the fruit. Cut the fruited stems away in February next year.

Give them time. I've never heard of this problem so I think patience is required.

Why remove the fruit, unless to your mouth? And why prune? You do not say the variety or whether summer or autumn fruiting.

Maybe it should have been cut back when you planted it.

Comfrey, but it can be a thug, as it spreads, but you can cut it several times a season.

Funnily enough a bat came in and flew round the room last night. It settled on a curtain and I was able to put it out. Not sure how it got in as the windows are closed!

Favourite native mammal?

Not entirely true; the local otters fish under the bridge in the centre of town in the early morning.

Fencing alternatives - Ivy?

To be serious! A beech hedge would fulfil the brief. It keeps its leaves during the winter and with clipping is easy to keep in check.
