Michaelmas Daisy Pruning

At this time of year all I can see of mine are the remains of the top growth which I ought to have removed in autumn, but never got round to it. All you need to do now is to cut of the dead twigs, back to soil level and wait.

Scratch the bark with a finger nail. If alive, under the bark will be green. Ours have only just got buds in the last few days though.

The grubs can only survive if there is food for them in the compost and as they only eat roots, then there should be nothing for them to eat. They are really only a big problem in pots where they are forced to go round and round dining on the roots. Out in the garden they tend to eat in a straight line so they do not completely destroy a plant.

As said, remove all the dead fronds. On evergreen ones the rule is remove an old leaf for each new frond.

Definitely the second one is Leucojum vernum. The first is almost certainly Muscari comosum Plumosum.

Should not be a problem as long as you remember the rules about what you cannot put down the toilet. (Everything must be bio-degradable).

Once upon a time the contents of the 'earth closet' were used on the garden as fertiliser and people survived.

As Nutcutlet says, the grey water, which is all that should come out of the system, goes into a deep soak away and does not rise to the surface.
