round up touch any reviews?

I've used the gel on dandelions in the lawn and it's fine - it works and doesn't affect the grass as long as you're careful and only put it on the weeds.

I've killed  bindweed  with Roundup Spray - you need to put some canes in the garden and encourage the bindweed to grow up the canes.  Then mask off your plants with sheets of cardboard and spray the bindweed.  Leave the bindweed until it goes brown - that indicates that the active ingredient (glyphosate) has travelled back to the roots and killed them as well.  It sometimes works better if you bruise the leaves slightly before spraying.

Some questions about Basil

A packet of basil seeds will cost you less than two plants from a supermarket, and, sown next spring will provide you with hundreds of plants 

Please tell me I'm not nuturing a weed!

Those who are visiting here  http://www.e-ruston-oldvicaragegardens.co.uk/pages/view/562/gardens.htm on the 19th July can expect to see lots of Pokeweed in the wilder parts of the garden, under the big shelter belts of Monterey Pine.

It is a gorgeous colour isn't it - friend lived in Pershore and was in the middle of writing a book on plums (more from a cook's point of view than a gardener's) when she became ill - so the colour seems appropriate for her

I just went into the front garden and look what greeted me .... H. Summer Wine's first bloom of the year - I bought it last year on a lovely day out with a dear friend who has since passed away.  Happy Memories

Hmm, just seen the weather forecast - dry today, hot tomorrow, rain over the weekend and into next week - I'd better get the lawns cut before the weekend ....
