Dove is spot on, and I would do it now. Apparently the Romans used to prune roses quite late to make them flower later.

Dave, you will have a fare bit of hard work, but it is do-able.

First pick up and dispose of all the rubbish, mend the fences.

I would then spray with glyphosate (not sure about spelling) following the instructions exactly on the container. You will need to work out which size container to get.

Once you've done that, take more pics (they can be uploaded direct from a computer - press tree icon) then we can tell you the next move

Good luck with it.

gardenj I was potting on tiny germinated things for flooded gardens on Thursday; I've never grown in much quantity before, so it became quite a production line.

I don't have spare seeds at the moment, but may have once this current planting binge is over.

Hostafan, I couldn't have put it more clearly myself

And as for parties... I've made gooseberry cake with cardamom cream icing. It's weird but spookily wonderful.

garden j, of course you can borrow me. I expect u have already gone the offcom route? in your dealings with BT. One time it took me 18 months to get a copy of my contract with them; I even phoned their head office where I was told that members of the public were not allowed to speak to anyone in Head Office as everyone was far too busy/important!!! I expect you can imagine my reply. But I got what I wanted in the end

I love orange, but I couldn't wear a whole one.

I was very impressed by the way they trained trees in this garden

 I wish my climbing roses and apricot were as well trained
