Wild Hollyhock Advice

Posted: 11/10/2016 at 10:58

When I was at a little village school many many years ago the playground was surrounded by hollyhocks growing out of the cracks between the tarmac and the walls - they grew there for years, seeding themselves into the cracks and growing and blooming with no interference or help from any human - they were a picture every summer - I'm sure yours will be fine

Wildflower identification

We really need to see leaves and how the flowers leaves and stems relate to each other - but going by what I can see in the photo I'm wondering about Solidago virgaurea.

I think the danger is that Trump is seen as the protest vote against the political establishment and the elite - and there's a lot of people who want to protest against that. Sadly there are others who are riled by the sight of a black president in the White House and will vote for Trump to protest against that. He is hoovering up every feeling of insecurity and disatisfaction and pressing its buttons to make it worse. He says he will stop this, that and the other, but he never says how. He's a danger to America as a candidate and will be a danger to the world as a president. However did it come to this? 

Bind weed

Posted: 11/10/2016 at 08:26

Spraying at this time of year will not work. Weed killer needs to be sprayed onto weeds while they're in active growth. 

I don't think there's a lot you can do at the moment that will deal with the bindweed. I'd remove the plants you want to save in the spring and pot them up, then wait for the bindweed new growth to appear and spray with glyphosate, let if go brown , wait for regrowth and spray again. It may take several applicationS and a lot of patience.

The roots of the walnut also exude a substance which prevent many other plants from growing near to it, so her ever it grows, be prepared for a bare patch around it.

A proper besom is the best tool to use - there'll be lots in the hardware shops and garden centres at this time of year - every witch worth her salt will be needing a new steed for the end of the month
