we grow our sweet corn in toilet roll tubes which protects the roots and then plant in a square so as they support each other.

Unblocking water buts

you need to have over your guttering netting  and the pipe straight into the butt it self or you may need to cover  inlet with  mesh or net.as to the problem now you will most likely have to go a up a ladder to un block it.

top heavy lilac

I had to chop down my old lilac as it caught a virus of sorts(it was well over 40 years old) and a lot in the area were the same.But I do have a lovely new one I grew from  a twig and it is healthy and beautiful.So sadly  you  may have to say good bye to it.When pruning always ensure your sheares  are clean as otherwise you will transfer viruses.

I think at the end of the day it comes to persistent hand weeding until till you get rid of roots or suckers , by keeping up with weeding you lessen its chance of reproducing and making sure you do not let any seed heads linger. Gardening  is about the up keep and weeding which you ll always have to do, even with the use of chemicals which are a short term solution  any way.
