can I BARE ROOT MY ROSES

And remember to mention to the prospective buyers that  (if the roses are still in the ground when they view or agree to buy) they are not included in the sale. Potted plants are o.k.

Does anyone know what this is?

It is one of the few weed seeds which will go through the heat produced in Council compost making operations. So you think you are being conservation minded by using non-peat compost and you get this nuisance (being polite here) coming up in your newly potted plants.

That Oxalis is one of the worst weeds going. Burn it before the seeds pop or you will have it all over your garden, your neighbours gardens. It really is a baddy of the first water.

I think the drunken husband thing was a Sedum aka Welcome home husband be ye never so  drunk (or something like that).

There are about 1200 named Semps in the National Collection (Fir Croft Nursery, Calver,derbys).

Without standing on my head to look properly I would guess Physostegia virginiana. But that is a real guess.

The soil will definitely sink as the material rots down and compacts. Also  most alpines do not like that rich a soil,so they would either grow out of character or die.

Just remember that MB is a short term freeby and if you want it to remain on your machine and working, you have to buy the full program.

I keep Spybot on and that clears most things out. I also have a background program called Scotty from WinPatrol (Google it for the Website). This prevents anything from altering your computer without your permission.

Picture of the problem would help. Diseases and fungus which attack Gooseberries would not attack Damsons.

Don't just use Spybot to remove Win32, you need to do more than that. We had this and Spybot claimed to have removed it, but when I ran it again, there it was.

Google it and follow the instructions on Malaware site.

Most likely is keel slug damage followed by wireworm,using the entry made by the slug.

Almost impossible to get rid of. Our neighbour farmer has stopped growing potatoes commercially because of these underground dwelling pests.

Dig over and leave the soil exposed and hope the birds etc. eat the pests.
