Add a little Washing up liquid to the Weed killer. It makes it stick to the leaves so it is then absorbed.

The  cladding on our Summer house has lasted 18 years and has never been painted again either. Lasted longer than the hinges on the door.

Our Summerhouse is lined with loft insulation (we had some left over after doing the loft, wear mask and gloves and long sleeves). On top of that we nailed B&Q 's cheapest stuff they sell for covering floors, pine effect, very thin pieces of wood, tongue and groove. Cannot for the life of me remember what it is called.

My mum passed away yesterday.

Very sorry to hear that. As said, the legacy she has left you will last your lifetime.

Anyone know this plant?

I start in January, but that is because it take such a long time to et round them all. I noticed that Bodnant Gardens had cut theirs down a lot earlier than that. They are a lot milder than we are though. I also have just dug up a hundred or so seedlings from round some yellow flowered upright facing ones.  Good time to do that. Also planted about 50 in the wall outside the garden (road side verge which belongs to us). Mainly to get rid of the plants rather than any aesthetic considerations. Splitting plants is best done in September though. They form new roots as the soil cools down.
