Kill Grass and Weeds

That's the product. Where can it be purchased? Places like B & Q or garden centres?

 

Is it expensive?

Thanks

I know that somewhere on this forum there is a product that can be applied to weeds/grass to prepare an area for an allotment but, i cannot find it. Some kind of phosphate product that you apply and then cover the ground in plastic.

Grateful for any response

Runner bean root disease?

I was tidying up today and pulled up the roots from my runner plants from last year. The roots were all deformed I thought it was club root but everywhere I look online it says this doesn't effect beans.

I forgot to take a photo and chucked them in the landfill bin so I've tried to draw what it looked like, maybe someone will recognise?

 

Does anyone know what this is? Should I avoid planting beans there again? Or is this NORMAL?!?!??!!!

Mine's just started popping up.

That's not a forcing pot. It's to keep the rabbits off!

Why won't they leave my allotment in peace

 Does constant forcing year after year cause any stress to the plant ??

My new borders are the same Loganberry. Patience is what you need more than anything!

If you've a B&Q nearby http://www.diy.com/nav/garden/garden-care-watering/compost-sand-bark/sand/Verve-Horticultural-Grit-11907577

Crumbs! As my plot is quite large and soggy at the moment I would need about 50 bags of that grit... Too expensive for me. I'll have to wait for warmer weather...

Ok,

I planted them out today. I incorporated some compost and sat them on a raised ridge for drainage. The cage is necessary because my plot is on a farm and there are loads of rabbits

The ones that I lifted were 'Desiree' and they tasted delicious

Sorry to be a pain. Will coarse grit from a builders supply be OK?
