I willl certainly  try this out Thank you I have sprinkled salt into  the centre of dandelions This works providing it has a chance to work prior to rain.

Last year I spent much time in hospital and more due shortly, prior to going into hospital I had control of ground elder. It is now there in quantity, any ideas for clearing it would be welcome Prior to this I concentrated in digging but this will not be an option for some time. I have tried roundup but did not find this very helpfulThank you for your help

No its  not too late. Why not give your local garden centre a ring to see  if they have had more delivered.Many supermarkets often sell them, well worth a look Violas  can offer an attractive alternative     Good luck

Do go ahead and plant! I always plant tulips deeply and have many that have been in for years. As others have said remember to feed.

I would suggest ligularia too

What tree is this?

I would agree on escallonia. An additional suggestion would be to try layering a branch,anchor it down with a stone, hopefully by next season it will have rooted

I do agree  with Berghill, alliums can be a delight but also some varieties are best described as a weed  so plant with caution!

No contest! About 35yrs ago I received a Mothering Sunday gift from my daughter. I believe the official name for it is a  daisy grubber It is in constant use as a weeder, planter etc but to me it will always be known as Rachel's tool
