Any suggestions as to planting distances from the pear for the comfrey and chives?
Also, I have some lupine seeds that I got from Johnny's. Any ideas on how to get them started for nitrogen fixing around the pears? Should I just scatter them in the mulch and hope for the best or start them in pots next spring?
why on earth would you put comfrey in a pot to constrain its roots!
but other repellent ideas - especially for the voles - would be welcome

You mentioned using hardware cloth around your trees to protect from rabbits. Is that like a sacking cloth? Do you just wrap it around th trunks and attach with string or such? Does the tree still function ok? Would it work against sheep? My 4 little minature Ouessants are ruing the bark on my tree and posts and netting are such an ugly protection.
soil, I smiled at your response as I'd thought the same thing. MikeH, glad you clarified.
