Thanks for that,horror stories from america when I googled it wrists hands ankles taking weeks to recover,think its just their types of scorpion weed maybe.My borage and comfrey no probs so will seek out some seed / plants for next year.Funnily enough,hubbys eye just reopening after a chance sting when he was closing them down on wednesday ....wonder why he bought the veil..thanks again .

Whoops sorry,seems my question went awry,just read an article about scorpion weed and lots are an irritant,can anyone say which are ? The article talks about bees falling in love with it, as beekeepers we are interested in anything that has good nectar quantities especially to fill gaps between other plants ,sorry again for not posting properly the first time ,dee

Hello Adam , have tried a spray of glyphosyte on large tussocks of grass in an autumn raspberry patch not really successful,do I need a second application?or when the hot weather is over have the small butane flame throwers been successful or will I kill the raspberries too [worse still set the garden alight?]see 6/4/12 for detail thanks dee

Hi adam, we have a plot of autumn raspberries[30ftx10ft]large tussocks of grass started last year , have dug out ten leaving 6inch x 1ft holes and the clumps are really heavy.Getting older by the minute any better way to get rid of the remaining 10? [plus others coming up ].We used horse manure 2 yrs ago,if its any clue.Dont like weed killers but may have to, what do you think?They are near the rasps but we do have a lot I suppose[are the rasps all linked up with each other? Thanks deed.
