Well Dovefromabove I think you have got it! From what I read should be wonderful in autumn - I'll post a picture when it colours and forget about fruit, flowers, pruning just encourage it to spread!!

I have a spreader for my lawn and from one year to the next I might buy a different make of product or different product depending on my need and special offers eg just lawn feed or lawn feed and weed or mosskiller plus weed and feed....there is no way I can vary how much of the product is spread and I can't find any marking on the spreader to say how much is being spread per m. I just have to rely on all the companies being about the same overall.

On googling kiwi leaves they seem to be heart shaped. There are no hairs on the leaves or stems...could be another variety - I know nothing about kiwis.

 It has produced no flowers or fruit at all but put on masses of growth. Any ideas? Thanks

The best weed spreaders are dandelions, sycamore trees and cleavers in my garden!

There have been several threads about his plant recently - type in the search box and all the threads should come up. The main chat was about suckers coming from the roots and throwing up new unwanted plants therefore how to kill them! It is a lovely tree but be aware once you have got it it is difficult to get rid of. I haven't heard any problems about roots/foundations but I would be inclined to be careful about siting this plant as it can get very big and you may need to dig around the root area.....

A member of the persicaria family - a weed! Bin it as it spreads...probably was on the pot the Helenium came in and it has survived unlike your Helenium!!

Never divided this plant but all the advice says you can break it into the pieces you speak of. Pot bound plants flower better so putting it back in the same pot seems like a plan and putting your new divisions in small pots too. Cutting off damaged roots (apparently they will die back anyway and may cause a problem) is a good idea. Hope the link below helps and that you are successful - I would think the offsets, once rooted and if you haven't got room for them would make good presents or could be sold....

It sounds like it could be tomato moth - though the holes are very small. The caterpillars (green or brown) tunnel into the fruit - open a fruit and see if you can see one.

It looks like a very healthy plant to me. I don't know what they are but |I don't think you have anything to worry about.
