All good info on ere folks just the job, and oh by the way do builders use any type of grit, you know the type for putting on top of the pots to help keep in the moisture as i find the G/c very expensive AND the sun is almost out today ere in Norfolk.

Lulu, just another point,when it flowers if its blue and you want to repot or pot into garden then you need to make sure it has acid soil (lots of Aluminium in the soil )   5.5 to 5 PH , Mauve colour is acid to neutral soil, Alkaline for pink flowers and to enhance the pink just give a little limestone or chalk, if your garden soil is not acid then it will turn pinkish, and if you can ,only use rainwater.

Getting rid of bamboo in tricky spot

Posted: 08/05/2014 at 10:17

Morning i found this on the net,as it seems this subject is often a problem, weedkiller 2U

Most weedkillers are based on the active ingredient glyphosate, with the exception of Scotts Weedol which is based on the active ingredient didquat. This is a fast acting weed killer, but it will not kill deep rooted perennial weeds such as docks, nettles etc. For this a glyphosate weedkiller is required.

So for a complete control weed killer, a glyphosate based weedkiller is the one to go for. This covers all the major brands such as Roundup, Pathclear and Bayer Super Strength.  The key is how much active ingredient per Kg does the weedkiller have. For example Roundup has 120g of glyphosate Roundup Ultra 3000 has 360g, but Bayer Superstrength Glyphosate has a massive 680g! This makes this product the ideal tool for treating  extemely tough woody weeds such as Rhododendron or Japanes knotweed, along with usual weedkilling of dandelions, docks and other run of the mill weeds. If you would like to view this product please click on the link below.
