There is information on the RHS site. They recommend varieties and cultivation.

Fast growing hedge

Yew also grows faster than you think, and it is very well-mannered and can be trimmed as necessary.

Clivia has a flower coming - what next?

You have to be careful not to leave it in full sun as it doesn't like it. They prefer to be pot-bound. Feed.

They are very tolerant.

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.

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

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.
