Not carrot.  They look much more like Phacelia - as you say, often grown as a green manure, also as a plant for bees as they love the flowers.

We've put the net over the pond, but the ash leaves are always later falling than most trees - we noticed on the way home yesterday that the lime trees along the Newmarket road have just started dropping their leaves and the pathways beneath are golden - they're the first to fall around here. 

Advice on a container hedge?

As long as they don't dry out they should be ok.  Or you could try hardening them off over the next couple of weeks, putting them outside  in a sheltered spot during the day and putting them in the garage at night, until they're tough enough to stand the winter outside in their sheltered spot.  They'll drop their leaves, but that's to be expected - they're deciduous.

It makes sense to me too Verdun - there's no point in spending time and energy (not to mention money) doing half a job and finding the problem returns.

Its tenacious and spreads like wildfire - Im afraid that getting rid of as much as possible won't be good enough - leaving just one or two pieces of root will result in the same problem all over again in a relatively short space of time.

Just love Obama telling Trump to 'stop whining'. It points up Trump as exactly what he is; a spoilt rich boy with an inflated ego and sense of entitlement.

Good morning all 


Special ((hugs)) for Hosta. 


DD Have a lovely time with Charlie. You'll be fine exploring and adventuring together. I can remember the time when I had so little self confidence that I couldn't go into a supermarket that I'd not been in before without having a panic attack. You'd be amazed at the things I've done since including staying in various parts of France (including Paris) with only very rudimentary schoolgirl French and travelling around Italy with no Italian at all! have a great time
