Eradicating ivy

Posted: 23/03/2012 at 23:41

Cut through any ivy at the base of your wall. Cut a gap in the stem a good 6" apart, as long as it's not just a cut to seperate, as it can heal itself., leave it to die off before pulling it away. It's less likely to pull out any mortar if it's dead. Just before spraying with round up etc, bash the leaves with rake, stick anything to bruise the leaves so the round up is absorbed better.

Can I move my peony?

The best time to move peonys is when the plant is dormant. I have often relocated mine. I plant them at the same depth as they were. I have occasionally split up a clump, ensuring there are new buds on the sections. Then either potted or re planted, again at the same depth. I have never had a problem with any of the above.

whilst looking through the plants on the list under A, I found I couldn't easily go to the list starting B. Maybe an alphabet list at the bottom of each page might help.
