greenhouse leaks

Garjobo, was it you that posted a series of photos on YouTube?  If it was, several posters wondered if you had constructed the greenhouse correctly.  If it wasn't I apologise!!

Strangled tree

Depending on the rootstock it may be the tree needs a support throughout its life.  You may need to replace the strap, but obviously not with one that harms the tree.

our bitch is ruining the lawn .... any ideas?

Depending on her age, perhaps you can train her to wee on a gravel patch. Or put her on a lead when she goes out, so she goes where you want her to.

My wild flower 'bible' is the Pocket Guide to Wild Flowers, Mcclintock & Fitter, 1969 Edition!!  Sort of thing you might pick up in a charity shop or car boot sale. It has line drawings and good detailed descriptions.  I don't find books with photos of wild plants are very good.
