Help identifying this plant/weed

Noooooooooooo!  don't use glyphosate ... the little plants are really good in a mix of salad leaves! 

Forsythia

Don't just lop a bit off the ends - you'll end up with a yellow shaving brush next spring.  


Choose the oldest branches and take out a few as low down as possible, where they branch off from the main plant.  Do it when the flowers have faded and not later.  The plant will grow some replacement branches which will flower next year.  

I.D please

Try reducing the size of the photos - that usually works. 

Is this Japanese Knotweed?

Bruise the leaves, spray them with glyphosate and leave for three weeks or so until it's totally died down and turned brown.  You may need to do it a couple of times but it'll work.

Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurve sugared almonds ......... they might just be my luxury on my Desert Island 

Which flower/plant to use?

Posted: 14/04/2017 at 11:28

Three petunias would be plenty.  They often come in little packs of six but you could plant the left over ones in a pot of compost.


When the flowers begin to die and turn brown nip them off and that will encourage the plant to keep flowering for longer.


Let us know how they get on
