Brambles and weeds

Posted: 15/04/2014 at 11:06

Little Bird, that thread was in 2012, Geoff hasn't been here for ages.

Your links were more about farming and use of pestcides and herbicides over large areas. Careful use of glyphosate in a private garden, away from food crops and aquatic life, such as spot treating a bramble, is not in the same league. But I am anti pesticides which are far more dangerous and destroy the natural balance of nature.

I love Bishop's Children too. Mine are like Pam's, still come up.

Bit cooler today, rained a bit in the night. Got very hot weeding the big border in the sun yesterday. As soon as the bread is ready to leave for second rising I'm off to do more weeding. Must hang out washing first.

Welcome back Potty G! Congratulations on birth of your 1st grandchild. Glad work is going OK. Enjoy the holidays.

I've been so busy I haven't been here much. Feel knackered and Arthur Itis is playing up. While I've been trying to sort end of big border weeds are growing like mad everywhere else.

Here are my babies, from seed, around 100 plug plants should be arriving this week.
