That new roundup gel

Posted: 01/06/2013 at 21:04

I don't rate Roundup at all.By the time it starts to work 200 more weeds have appeared. If you use it on dandelions the foliage dies down so slowly that the flowers have already grown and flowered

Think there are rules regarding barbed wire adjacent to pavements and boundaries Verd- otherwise I'd have used that to keep children running through my garden!

Jinxed- perhaps you could put in a simple wire fence of some sort  while plants grow? Wire mesh and tree stakes wouldn't be too expensive. Is it a big area?

Art- I wish! I do love technical drawing though. Have done a plan for my garden in preparation for extension etc. Might put that on! Only thing I've drawn recently I'm afraid.

Verd...I beat you to it. My windowsills are exemplary... 

Night w'song. Pity you have to be up so early- I did that for years- knackering.Thanks for the lovely pix!

Daisy- a couple of clematis fell into my car earlier too. 

Just looking at the posts from last night. Lovely pic Bev- really clear. Damsel fly. We used to get tons at last house- I could have watched them for hours. Dragonflies are a bit later.  Lovely nest Ggirl. Will be  great watching the young birds.

Isn't nature stunning!

Something jaggy- pyracantha, berberis or hawthorn would be my recommendations Jinxed. The first two are evergreen and you can get quite sizeable specimens in pots although they will be a bit dearer. I really sympathise with you. Unfortunately anything you put in will take a bit of time to grow but if you put a jaggy barrier in it may help prevent access. Pyracantha and berberis hedges are also recommended by the Police etc as  a deterrent to intruders. I doubt you would have success transplanting your other choisya as you would need to take a huge chunk of rootball for it to work which, as you say, would require a fair bit of help.
