No chance! A friend has got me 5 bluebell chicks which she is keeping for me until they're old enough to go outside. There's no way I'd get rescue hens again!

I did half wonder if it was just due to the fact that they're rescues. A few people had said that they tend to start dropping dead at 18 months. But it's weird that it all happened so quickly and with ...

Unfortunately we don't really have the space to move them around, although I did try to think of a way in which we could do it.

At the end of April we got 6 rescue hens, and in the space of two months every one of them died. They all died the same way, which included dampness around poos, loss of balance, lethargy then death. ...

Great! Thanks for all the advice. It's good soil that doesn't go solid when dry, and it doesn't get waterlogged either, so we're lucky with that. I was going to borrow a pickaxe from my father in law ...

That sounds reassuring! I want to plant a hazel tree and a cherry tree in the bed, as well as a variety of other edible or medicinal perennials. I'll have a further dig about, and I'll try digging hol ...

Me again with yet more noobish gardening questions! I spent weeks de-turfing a large area of garden only to find that underneath, the ground is made up entirely of large stones/ small rocks. Can I get ...

Thanks for all the great advice, everyone. Maybe I will give bamboo a miss, but I'll definitely plant hazel, willow and any other shrubs I like the idea of. I suppose, if trees can grow out of ruined ...
