I found ant killer worked wonders if sprinkled around them.

Glut of apples

I too usually have a glut of apples, and apart from giving some away, I make apple muffins,  They can be flavoured with many other ingredients.  Apple sorbet is very nice too, and can be made without a machine.

Thanks for the suggestions. If it ever stops raining long enough I will certainly try the selective weed killer, and in the meantime enjoy the lovely smell!

We had some new turf laid last October, in place of old fruit bushes.  Unfortunately we now have brambles and mint growing through.  I have tried stump and bramble killer on the main plants, but how do I get rid of the bits growing through the lawn without killing the grass?

Any help would be appreciated.
