Chicken poo and straw

I would add it to the compost as the chickens are cleaned out. Layer it with shredded paper (at this time of the year there won't be too much else) and vegetable waste. If you use it too soon it will burn the plants and it won't rot down well in enclosed bags.

Fartychokes are delicious. Not just soup. Scrape before cooking. Mash with butter after cooking.

They do not lose their power even if fully cooked.

Fesnau is a good smoothish variety.

They are completely hardy, they can be planted out now if the ground isn't frozen. I planted mine in November and they are all up.

" do garlic grow below ground or will they grow bulbs just like a flower"

I do not understand what you have written Willowkitten. Yes, garlic grow underground and yes, they grow a bulb like a flower.

You will be able to harvest in about July when the foliage dies off.

Healthspan sell animal vitamins and minerals at much, much cheaper prices than the vet.

You say you are worried about the salt content. Don't be. The body is very good at regulating the salt content of blood and all this nonsense about salt and blood pressure is just that...Nonsense.

Unless you saw him doing something, your only remedy is to re-plant.

I'm sorry but in my view planting Leylandii is almost an aggressive act unless you really do intend to look after them.

Can you not buy the roll-up slatted wood they sell specifically for the problem you describe?

High powered water pistol or hose. Cats hate getting wet.

Sounds awful to me. Like the difference between a ready meal and home cooked with fresh ingredients. How difficult is it to find a decent site selling bulbs and make your own choice?

Moss

If you put it in the compost straight away, you will spread moss everywhere you put compost. You can put it in rubble sacks or old compost bags until it is completely, completely dead and then use the resultant soil in the garden.

All depends what kind of moss it is. We have it on paths and the drive. When it dries out the blackbirds rake through it for worms.
