Oh 'eck Verdun - I'd better try to find the roll of fleece that's somewhere under all the Aged Ps' stuff in the garage

That's useful as I think most blueberries need another in order to be pollinated - am I correct?

Hello folks!  I've just taken Wonky back to Ipswich - she was missing her hubby

We went via the garden centre of course - her wages for all the hard work was that Choisya White Dazzler - I must say I've never ever noticed the perfumed leaves of choisya before, but that one has fantastically scented leaves

Well it's official...

Thank you for the reply! Gives me a little bit of hope. One thing I forgot to mention, I don't want to use any chemical / weed killers at all. Thanks again.

Few of us want to, but sometimes needs must - glyphosate is often used initially prior to organic smallholdings/nurseries being established, in order to eradicate pernicious weeds such as couch.

Hi Jordan

To post photos on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where your type your post.  Hope that helps.

I think it will be a case of hand weeding as the couch grass reappears, and if necessary in the future then you can divide the allotment into sections and tackle it with glyphosate, area by area

Good luck
