Sorry BrummieBen it is illegal to trap a wild animal and release it in the wild anywhere.  And what makes you think the people 50 miles away want your urban fox?

Just scatter the seeds where you will.  It is one self-seeder I welcome as you can easily pull out those plants you don't want.

blackspot

I've looked on the RHS site, and nowhere does it mention copper or Epsom Salts as a treatment for blackspot.  Has there been wrong advice or misunderstanding?

Good nice looking water butt advice?

Have you explored what your water supplier has to offer?  Wickes sell cheap water diverters to fit in your down-pipes.

There is a cheap Collins Gem book in that Bookshop in the Sky.  I have not seen it but the whole series of their books are pretty reliable.

People also seem to have a desire to cut the verges outside their houses?  Why?

They are probably the same people who applaud the councils for cutting country verges, and banks, orchids, bluebells and all.

When you save the seed you have to allow the seed to ferment before you wash it and then dry it.  There are specific instructions on several web-sites.

Garlic

I have never watered garlic; does it need it?  They are a Mediterranean crop.

Potatoes

I don't know Rooster but usually there will not be a crop worth digging until the plant has flowered.  If they are maincrop they can be left until the foliage dies down naturally.

Next year I would grow mainly earlies as you will be able to harvest them earlier as they are meant to be small.
