You would surely be allowed to grow lettuce and tomatoes in containers on your terrace/patio.

If you post a photo of the space, with info about North/South orientation you will get loads of advice about the garden. In the meantime, try to get out any weeds.

Not sure if it is a weed? Post a photo here by clicking on the tree icon.

Advice for getting rid of plant

Hello amromb, I would just dig it up, making sure that you get as much of the root as possible with it. Someone else on the forum may identify it for you. When I dig up a plant I don't want, I put it in a plastic bag by the gate with a sign saying 'FREE DAFFODILS' or whatever the plant is. Someone always takes the plant

I've got a small hedge of Leylandii, right beneath it in the deep shade grow; Corydalis, For-get-me-nots, near by is Vinca Minor Alba. I'm trying Arum Italicum, planted this year.

Hello GG, I have used my own seed for several years, but did not have a good crop this year. I'm going to get new cloves to plant and will only use them for about 3 or 4 years before replacing them
