Not sure why you think it's a problem.  Quite normal behaviour! 

Fruit, Berry, poisonus or edible

Arbutus aka Strawberry Tree.

Leeks

I conversely make a hole with the dibber, drop the plant in, then water the whole row of planted leeks, washing the soil in.

Badly explained help!

If the pots are clustered it makes it easier to throw some protection over them.  Perhaps they just needed to add that to make sense of the tip!

My Runner/ Broad beans

There are injurious weeds which it is an offence to have growing on your land.  Councils should get rid of them from road verges, but they don't.
