Charlemagne passed a law making in compulsory to have Sempervivums on the roof.

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.

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.

There is a case for actually placing this plant on the Banned list (like Japanese knotweed and Balsam). It is an awful thug.

Once saw someone coming out of a Garden Centre with three of them! Heaven help their neighbours.

Allium yellow star - do we cut the foliage?

Once it has started to wither then it is ok to remove the leaves. I also take off the flower heads as they seed everywhere.
