Beautiful Thugs

Posted: 04/08/2014 at 20:27

Obelix, I had problems growing Chinese Lanterns and really persevered; then they tried to take over the County!. it took days of digging, down to nearly 1 metre to get rid of the roots, which filled 3 sacks. That was after about 3 or 4 years of growth I think. Plant Nurseries really should warn about toxic plants and also invasive ones.

Having said that, Japanese Anemones are not invasive where I have put them; poor soil and pretty dry.

Rotting courgettes

Posted: 03/08/2014 at 20:46

A neighbour recommends removing flowers as courgettes develop to stop the rotting. Have done that in previous years, but forgot this year and have had no problems.

Instant height - posts and chain, where to get them?

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?

Why does it say I've reviewed all these plants?
