I can't enlarge them - that's probably why it looks like woodruff to me

Don't think you'll find anyone here disagreeing with you Asif

unknown red stemmed weed help?

The Roundup Fast Action does contain glyphosate - however I think the blurb is misleading - it says you see results in 1-2 days - you may see some browning/yellowing of the leaves, but the plants will not be dead for a couple of weeks. You have to leave them and wait until they're totally dead before you pull/dig them up.

Shade loving flower suggestions please

Some small-leaved variegated ivies would be pretty trailing over the edges of the containers, and would look fine with any of the above

Hosta   There seems to be a generation of people who think that if they "really really want" to do something enough, it will happen, as you say POOF, just like that

Task No 1 completed Wonky - definitely.

And as for my lurgy - not sure that I can blame this on the pollen after all - now feeling decidedly giddy and nauseous  The sofa feels like a ship in a storm  I shall try to hold on and not fall overboard

Hope I haven't infected Ipswich

Patchy Lawn.

I think that's much too often.  One application of spring feed about now, with possibly a second in June if the weather's not too sunny and dry (it'll scorch the grass) and a slow acting autumn feed in the autumn should be plenty
