Bindweed! Can it be battled organically?

Posted: 31/05/2014 at 07:25

We got rid of bindweed following a similar technique to Lilydotwin - the key is to be  methodical and patient 

Pros and cons of book writing.

Yarrow, that sounds a brilliant idea - I'd love to read such a book about Mike's gardening career and experiences

Hi Michael and Marg  and welcome   

I'm relatively sensible compared with some -  if they're good I'll bake a cake - if I'm not out in the garden laying on the grass staring into my pond 

That garden looks full of potential and doesn't have anything awful to dig out or get rid of from the looks of things.

What sort of things would you like in your garden?

Chicky - you must've gone more or less past the end of our road!!!

Hello folks   ((hugs)) G&Ts and chocolates all available here this evening for those who need them 

I got some pricking out done today - back began to ache bending over the table on the terrace so in the end I sat down there in the sunshine with a mug of coffee .

Lots of birds in the garden today - a new visitor is a Dunnock - we've not seen it in this garden before - I think it's started to visit because there's more cover now that the Little Wilderness is thickening up - it's going to get a bit bigger before long too, so that'll make the birds happy.

Can someone please remind me to pick up some plastic pots from the recycle bin at the GC when I go to the farm shop tomorrow
