Bare Root Wallflowers

Don't be too careful about not breaking the roots. I think they belong to the cabbage family so they are quite indifferent to fairly rough treatment.

Pinch them out to make them bushy when you plant them out.

There are books available which will help you. If you are doing it through the school they should find them easy to access.

Fat balls in plastic NO

Be careful with Aldi bird seed. I bought a big bag and it mostly consisted of grains the birds rejected so it was a false economy.

Take a pair of scissors and cut the plastic off. It's good to be able to see the fat balls before you buy them as they vary in size and quality. I usually buy them in a big tub. Cheaper that way, but take your calculator along to check it out.

Sorry runnerbean I misunderstood, I thought you meant your Recycling Bin, not your compost bin. My mistake.

OK. Some Councils charge to take away green waste. Look on your Council's website or ring them and they will tell you everything you need to know.

Depends what you mean by recycling. With our council it is household rubbish that can be recycled - plastic bottles, newspapers, tins, clean plastic food containers, cardboard, etc. Bottles have to go in the bottle bank. Then there is the waste food bin for, er, waste food. Then there is garden refuse collection for which you pay extra which, I think operates for 10 months of the year. Then there is landfill rubbish.

Phew!

I do know that Japanese Knotweed and Ragwort are not acceptable in any bin or at any Civic Amenity sites, aka The Tip. If you can get it to The Tip they take trees, branches, leaves, grass cuttings, etc. in my County. Look on your Council website, they all vary.

When you say 'a damper place' are you keeping it as a house plant?
