Bindweed :(

Posted: 25/02/2014 at 22:02

Bindweed does die back in winter leaving thin string all over what it climbed up.

Treat it in growing season with Glyphosate, not easy when it's all over everything! Then when it's dead, which may take a few goes, pull off the dead strings.

I made a hedgehog cake years ago for one of my children's birthday, easy and looked good. You make the cake in 2 bowls then put it together, fattest ends in the middle. But mine was covered in chocolate buttons, that's what was available at the time.

Does anyone know how to get seeds cheap in SW France? But I often buy them on trip to England, much more choice

No need for moss killer.

The crocus ones are lovely and do enlarge. The lawn ones are small.

We had a delicious lunch, work of art as well, with extra surprise dishes. Small helpings, but with 5 courses you couldn't manage big ones. Nothing I would be able to reproduce at home!

Thank you from OH for the birthday wishes. He gets a bit gloomy on birthdays now he's over 70 (72, I'm 62, sorry, slip of the tongue, 27). But he was cheerful at lunchtime! He's been playing the piano most of the time since we got back.

No gardening today, wet and windy.

I think a lot depends on the weather if you grow them outside. I'm sticking to seeds. Love Sungold, have sweet tooth!

Good morning all. Grey and drizzle here. Etoile Violette will have to wait for her prune, unless it clears up.

OH's birthday so we are going out to lunch in a Michelin starred restaurant.
