Himalayan Knotweed

Posted: 21/08/2015 at 07:32

That's good news Ginny May. 

Japanese Knotweed can be treated, but it needs consistent thorough application of the right chemicals - professional firms will provide certificates etc which usually keep mortgage providers/insurance companies happy.

Bushman, there's a few left - but you'd better grab one before the plumber gets here!

To Till or not to Till!

I agree - as long as I'm capable of digging (or getting someone to dig it for me) I don't see the need for a tiller - in my view the result is always a poor second best.

Midnight Star is gorgeous - a couple of years ago I had a voucher for a present and bought three bulbs and planted them together in a pot.  Each year they've put on a good display, but this year they're fantastic

Good morning all

Commiserations to all with creaky backs, legs and other bits.  Pdoc, enjoy the cricket - just as well they don't need you to bowl

Overcast and a bit dismal here but really mild 18.4C and rising.  Plumber due at 8.30 to service boiler then dig a hole in studio floor to hopefully unblock washbasin drain   Fingers crossed please folks!

It's pupating into the adult form - takes a little while.
