Green handed world has photographed the offending wall from, I would guess, upstairs which makes it look much more intrusive. If the poster could take some photos from ground level I think it would be easier to give advice.

fig tree

The cure is to slip paper bags over the figs just before they are ripe. Secure with a rubber band.

It is no good trying to ripen them off the tree. They will never reach a state of luciousness.

Or you can drape fine netting over the whole tree. Scaffolding netting is too fine for wasps to get through.

Yew bush

Yew takes to shaping very well; think topiary. Yew hedges are trimmed in the summer, so do it whenever you wish. But if there are birds nesting in it you may not disturb them until the nesting season is over. July.

Advice on filling new raised veg bed

Posted: 22/03/2016 at 00:37
The whole point of a raised bed is that you never tread on it. Ever. It should be a width that you can stretch from either side to the middle to cultivate and plant out.

This makes it unsuitable for sprouts which like a compacted soil but fine for everything else.

I had an excellent kitchen garden and the first thing the new owners did was put their goats in it!

Any idea what this is?..

Tetley, what do you mean 'tell the kids not to touch'. Notice? Stand there for days on end warning them?

You do know that legally if you tell anybody about a potential problem, you are entirely liable if they hurt themselves?

You don't have to mention anything in pots as they are moveable, but anything in the ground has to be noted.

Ticks

Wear long trousers and wear your socks outside. Wear long sleeves. This only applies when you are working in vegetation as ticks like to hitch a lift on passing warm-blooded animals.
