Can you get triclopyr, which is found in SBK brushwood killer? That can be used against saplings.

Yesterday's garden bothered me because I thought the beds and paths would merge in a matter of weeks with that layout. And I wouldn't like to lean against those steel planters in cold weather!

You're right, Emma - maybe analysis isn't appropriate for afternoon TV....

If the gaps are large and you can afford to spend a few pounds, perhaps you could dig out the weeks properly and then put creeping ground cover plants in to prevent them coming back? Local garden centres will have plants going fairly cheaply for the next couple of months.

Could be a blackbird digging for grubs, although they're not usually that neat.

Once the frost hits them they're dead. You can take cuttings before then and overwinter them indoors.

And watch out for any straight suckers, as reversion will leave you with a plain hazelnut tree.
