Glyphosate based weed killers (i.e. Roundup et al)

Posted: 19/05/2015 at 22:41

So have I, I've always had full cream milk except when I had Jersey cow double cream milk from my own cows.  Stress will raise your blood pressure, which is bad for you, if you worry about everything.

I will find out though whether my local French GC has any objections to glyphosate.

Thank you Gina and Kitty.

As for Swiss Sue and DD, hard luck! Because of French inheritance laws the house is partly owned by my children who don't want to sell it! 'Tis a bit worrying though because I'm getting older and the house is too big.

They sell glyphosate in the supermarkets in France.

I wondered if there would be a thread about Chelsea. I'm just recovering from my Garden Open Day on Sunday and doing my tax return today!

Like Hosta at the beginning of this thread, I would like to see more of the show gardens. They always miss some out. I don't want to see celebrities and I would rather see fewer bits that aren't the actual flower show.

I went to Malvern last Friday and they showed so little of it on GW, not even my favourite gardens, except the Spanish one.

I liked these two in Malvern.


Plant supports

I buy long thin steel rods from the DIY place and bend them around a tree then pull the ends up to make half ring supports. Much cheaper than buying these at the Garden Centre.


Salvia Amistad

My Salvia Amistad overwintered in one bed and are now about 2 feet tall, but the ones in the other bed died over winter.
