Goats are worms a problem?

Better find out how much area they need before you go any further.  Remember you will also need winter forage.  With that small area you will have to buy it in.  Do you know where, and how much it will cost?

With an area that small, I would stick to chickens.

What is the name of the seed company?  Some have very low germination rates, even though they have to reach a Statutory Minimum.

Goats are browsers and certainly do not feed exclusively on grass.  And certainly not long grass!

Like everything else worms have a life cycle, and you have to worm the goats regularly to break that cycle.

If you want to keep livestock like goats or pigs or even chickens you should talk to an experienced person before you embark on the enterprise. Keeping animals is a serious thing, you have to be there for them every day.

They have to be kept under cover, such as in a shed.  Do not leave them on the ground.

begonia tubers have bolted

What do you mean by 'bolted'?  Do you just mean they have started to grow?  Or do you mean they have flowered already in the paper bags?

The advice is good.  Plant them!

Look what I found under alkanet.

Red campion is also a fast-spreading weed.  Take care!

Yew is an excellent tall hedging plant.

'Loam' is just a description of good soil.  You can buy topsoil in sacks, but Verve is just compost isn't it?

fairy54, go to a specialist for your hedging.  It is amazing how quickly little sticks grow up.  If you go to a specialist hedge supplier (not a garden centre) you will find the bare-root plants are incredibly cheap.  But be quick the hedge planting season is nearly over.
