Do you really eat egg shells, Edd?  Are they an acquired taste?

If you look more closely at the photo it says 'lichen on blackthorn' so it isn't on gooseberry bushes.

It can be expected on blackthorn as they are long-lived trees.

A chunk of barley straw will kill it.  You can buy it expensively in garden centres, or if you can get it from a friendly farmer you can stuff it in a pair of tights with some stones to weigh it down and place in the pond.

If the fig's roots are not restricted in some way if they are in good soil you will get lots of growth and few fruit.  

The trick with fruit trees is to make them think they might, just might, die, then they produce fruit to propagate themselves.

The only problem would be droppings on the strawberries.  Washing strawberries is bad news.

You can buy treacle in any supermarket.  Not Blackstrap Molasses admittedly, but easily obtainable.

Jack, do you really not recognise goose-grass, cleavers, sticky weed?  Did you not have it in the school playground and stick it to the back of your friends/enemies?

Town children miss out on so much innocent enjoyment!!  Country children have too much time on their hands!!

what to do with my HUGE laurel???

Why did you bother to ask our advice, yesterday?

If you're busy, laurel is much less bother than a rose border.
