Take it easy Wonky - bulbs will wait until next week and there's rain forecast for tomorrow so just a jug full of water per plant, not buckets full!!! 

ID for interesting flowering plant, please.

Me too Nut 

Forsythia - Will I damage it if I cut back hard now?

Posted: 24/09/2016 at 11:16

I've found that this rejuvenation technique works well with old forsythia bushes

Flower bed gone wrong?

Yay!  Nothing to beat a good sharp Dutch hoe for keeping the little weedlings under control.

That view sounds fabulous Hosta   Glad you had a good day.


At least the giant carrots etc kept him occupied - his wife only had to turn up to help with the harvesting - she's probably really pleased that he has a hobby 


Weather?  Gorgeous here Hosta - light breeze, blue skies and sunshine ... sorry

They're just one of the many many types of worms and nematodes etc that live in our soil, breaking down organic matter and making it available to the plants.


There's nothing to worry about.

Obviously you teach your children to wash their hands after playing in the garden, just to be on the safe side - particularly as you have pets.

Sorry but I used Weedkiller

I agree, it's not Mare'stail.  


Whatever it is, I think you have two choices:


1. give the area a good digging over, removing every tiny piece of root - prepare your lawn and sow your grass.  If any bits of whatever it is reappear next year as long as you mow regularly it shouldn't cause a problem.


2. spray again with glyphosate and leave - sow your grass in the spring.

DD - that's brilliant - would you be kind enough to do some running on my behalf too - silly for both of us to do it  and it'd save me the bother - I could do something else, like making jelly 


and Fairy,  you could do my h****work and I'll plant bulbs for you   Teamwork!!!


((lots of hugs)) for Bushman and others in need of them 


Anyone seen Plantpauper lately ...
