Horticultural grit

Posted: 24/03/2013 at 07:48

Thats what I was looking at Geoff, I had seen it in B&Q website but whenever Carol Klein uses grit (which she seems to put on everything) it always seems like a coarser grit, but I think you could get a standard 10ml grit from quite a few places.

No option here, don't own a car so have to rely on council collections, its glass, plastic, tins/cans, foodwaste & landfill week 1, then its paper/card, cardboard & green waste i.e. garden waste on week 2 (but they only collect garden waste from 1st week in April - Oct). Although, we haven't had our paper bin collected for 6 weeks now, it's due this weds coming and if they don't take it this time then I will either burn it all in the street or just put it into land fill.

Well posted Verdun, I agree that Brumbull has made some great posts and been a valuable member and it would be a shame to loose him. It's a shame that other posters seem to want to upset this usually happy balance.

The first option would be to dig it up, there are pesticides available but I don't know if it will affect your other plants or soil. 

I have the same problem in one of my borders.
