I always do, it saves them trying to make seed.

Which variety of Buddleja would this be ?

The trouble is there are dozens of forms of Phildelphus, go to Pershore College and look at the National Collection. They are almost identical to the non-specialist.

And the dark form, Firecracker is even worse. another 5 years of weed killing and it still comes up.

Is mahonia invasive?

Not in my garden. In fact we lost 2 of them in the hard winter a couple of years back. The surviving ones are still just single stem shrubs after 18 years.

Another of those plants that I spend as much time weeding out as I can spare. I comes up everywhere in my Rock garden and smothers the more desirable plants. Terrible stuff.

Best time is Autumn, but possible in early Spring. Dig up the clump, they usually fall apart when you do, choose the newest pieces. Refresh the soil with compost and replant.

Go to a Farm Outlet type emporium and buy yourself a couple of Mole traps, the scissors type. Try to find a run by probing the ground and set the trap in the run. Wear gloves as they can smell your hands on the trap. In an area that size you will only have one mole by the way, they are solitary animals.

As for the soil, then yes collect up the stones and glass and if you can sieve out the majority of them from the soil.

Hard work, but it is possible, we sifted over 200 tons of soil to clean it up.
