 I am wondering if i kill the spreading roots with root kill if they will still keep comming! Why are things so complicated.

Thanks for all your replies. I think it is white poplar it's not in my garden but on our family owned land where i have my allotment. My late father in law always kept it tidy  ( well sort of ) there are two more areas where i would like to create wild flower meadows,also infected with the suckers. Not had time to go up today but i will have a look again  tomorrow for the main tree, there is a stream that runs on the edge of our land could it have spread across ? Think i have started something i will regret!

Thanks Will try to get better photo. The strange thing is we can't see a tree the same on our land, so we dont know where it has come from.

Hi i am currently preparing an area appox 30 square meter to make a meadow.

I have used weedkiller as i had a lot of ground elder, i am now digging over ready to sow meadow grasses. there were several small trees which i thought were sapplings, but they are all attatched to each other by spreading roots!  I have no idea what they are but the roots are very hard to pull up. I am thinking of cutting of at ground level then using root kill. Has anyone else had this problem?

Have a perennial heliotrope by my front door and the scent from that is wonderful.  The annual Marine....cherry pie....is merely a wannabe

 

I haven't heard of the perennial, i have Marine. Where can you buy this plant? is it similar to the annual? Thanks.

Gayle i don't think the council will get rid of it for you, if it's in your garden it's your responsibility. As mentioned in the other repiles when you sell a property  with knotweed you have to by law let the buyer know about it. I realy hope you can destroy it. Good luck.

I went round to my friends house and she proudly showed me her tomato plants that a friend had given her, They looked realy lush and healthy, she then said " i have been pinching all the flowers out". She couldn't understand why i was laughing, i had to explian that she obviously wasn't listening to her freind when she told her to pinch out the side shoots. Silly girl
