Lawn damage

Not crows if there are more than four of them. They are probably rooks!

Are these damsons or sloes please?

Sloe/blackthorn bushes grow into trees. Not sure what Cangrandmafixit is talking about. Bullace, damson and sloes are all edible.

Sloe and apple jelly is delicious with roast lamb.

Sieving soil - compaction?

Green manure is just plant material, good though it is. Manure is composed of bedding, faeces and urine and is not the same thing.

Seed Suppliers who Sell Small Amounts of Seeds

hyacinth bulbs

Prepared bulbs, yes. They need to be in the dark and cool until the flowerhead appears, not just until they sprout. They need to believe that Winter has passed.

Sorry Wills, I have given up on T&M their seeds are expensive and their germination rate poor.

Storing Garlic

If they are garlic that sprout so early I certainly wouldn't use them again for another crop. I would imagine you don't want garlic that are sprouting before the New Year.

October is usually when I plant mine, but any time up until Spring.

You can turn it if you have a mind to, but it will manage quite well doing its own thing.
