I was just wondering whether anyone has any good ideas, of how to get rid of bamboo. I have tried digging it up but it is very hard work with the shoots being so tough  and having spread quite a bit.

improving the lawn

Is this a good time of year, to put some of my rotting leaf mould on the grass to improve the structure and drainage.About three quarters of my lawn is shaded by a large oak tree, so it always needs a lot of work to keep it in a reasonable condition . This is the first dry sunny day in Norfolk we have had for a while, and I am really itching to get out and do something, Advice would very much be appreciated.

Do I trim the broccolli?

My broccolli plants had a fare amount of caterpillar nibbling in late summer , and have a lot of very bare lower leaves , although the centres have recovered a little , with nice new growth. Would it be of any benefit to the plant, to take off these lower stripped leaves?

Is it a good idea, to now get the green tomatoes off the outdoor plants, and ripen them indoors.

how would you suggest to store them. Would it be a good idea to take of the tops so they do not make the onions go rotten if they are damp.

Could someone tell me how long you have to hang onions , before eating them.
