Old Herbaceous Border

Yes, to remove ground elder I would dig up the plants that are near it at least and really go through their root systems, removing every little bit of the ground elder roots. Pop them in a bucket with some water, dig some well rotted manure in and replant. Sounds like a lot of work, but it really will be worth it

Green house heaters

Posted: 07/02/2014 at 14:09

This is for a g/h that is 6'x8'. I only had it installed in the Autumn and it has not been that cold yet, but I have a min and max thermometer (Amazon) which tells me how cold it gets at night and so far it has not dropped below 0, next year I think I will get some insulation on for the winter as well as the heater.

Hope this helps

If you have any more queries, I'm going out at 4.30 and will be seeing the electrician who installed it.

Carrots.

A neighbour uses fleece even on open bed. Or make a raised barrier about 30 or 40 cm high with fleece/polythene attached to canes as carrot fly are very low flying and a barrier should stop them.

Moles

brilliant film! I too suffer from a mole; he could have the whole of the back field, but no, he prefers my tiny lawn and herbaceous border.
