How do I get rid of it

Posted: 12/03/2014 at 19:44

I did a little gardening job for someone and dealt with the ground elder surrounding a peony by digging it up, washing the roots to get rid of any ground elder, planting the peony temporarily in a bucket. Then going through the soil thoroughly using a sieve to remove any hint of Ground Elder roots.

Does anyone talk to their plants?

Since joining GW forum,I have been overwhelmed with all the support & advise

tracey N, I joined a cooking forum about 18 months ago as I am passionate about cooking what i have grown, and left almost immediately; what can I say? they were absolute snot bags. It seemed to be all about snide competition; am not interested in that.

So glad you are on this forum

I do worry that when I see my tree peony flowering in late spring and invite neighbours over for a glass of wine to admire the huge white blossoms, that the roses may get jealous; am I being paranoid?

Help for flooded gardens

Posted: 12/03/2014 at 18:59

Am now on anti-biotics which I really dissaprove of for a cold, but chemist told me to see doctor, doctor /nurse person said; either anti-biotics or steroids...have we all gone mad??? It is just a nasty cold for heavens sake.

On another note, it is wonderful that all these seed packets have arrived. Rosie, can we see more pictures of the affected gardens, especially those that were bull-dosed for flood defences. I cannot imagine how awful that must be to have ones very much loved garden bull-dosed to save the surrounding houses

Verdun!!! How do you do it?

I just think it is so wonderful that all my plants speak/understand English. How on earth do gardeners abroad manage?

I have had to remove 3 large bumble bees from conservatory, using the jam jar and cardboard technique. I do love them; they just don't seem feasible as flying machines
