Nothing since I received the letter about "noise and banging". I've been drawing out plans for the garden next year, and labelled the wall to the left as "sour-faced b&^£* from hell's wall" lol

What I'd do is get either the gel or spray, stick the bindweed in a bucket and use a paintbrush to treat it. That way, you can target the weed, but not have to worry about the product getting onto the pampas. Keep it in the bucket for a day or two. Roundup is brilliant for me, I tend to use the spray, although I have the gel as well. You will notice die-back within a week

It staggered me how quick mine sent their flower stalks up. Have you been feeding them?

Tesco had their packs of 20 pansy and viola down from £3 to 30p, and their hanging baskets filled with pansies down from $5 to 50p. I bought 4 packs of bedding and two hanging baskets - the baskets are the perfect size to fit in the top of the chimney pots my Dad gave me. With a bit of tlc, they'll flower their socks off for months

I plant them at four times their height. I've had a lovely display, only started a week or two ago though. Maybe yours still flower very soon?
