I plant my greenhouse grown sweetcorn plants through black fleece (in order to avoid disturbing the adventitious root through weeding). This year they have  been dug up and left over the planting hole. We suffer from badger damage but this is far too delicate for Mr Badger. It appears to be far too violent for birds - we have the usual population including crows, ravens, red kites and buzzards. Unlikely to be rats, mice or squirrels because the seed is left behind. I have got the wildlife cam out but nothing captured so far. Anyone have any idea what can be responsible for this vandalism. I will post again if I discover the source.

I inherited a currant bush with my allotment.  Last year it didn't fruit (think I pruned it too hard). This year it has LOADS of berries and they are turning purple so I would guess they are blackcurrants?  Never been fond of them to eat as is, so any suggestions for what I can do wit them? Thanks

My very neglected water lily has several flower buds but also quite a few leaves sticking right out of the water. Clearly it needs dividing, but would it help the flowers if i cut off some of the leaves now?
