Does anyone know what this plant is?

Haven't tried the glyphosate on it so let me know if you have any luck with that. It spread all over my rockery and I had to basically take the whole thing apart and tediously pull each piece of root out, put the whole thing back together again and replant with new plants! I wish I had not planted it in the first place ! Ahh well- we live and learn !

It's a Campanula Portenshlagina- I had the same problem- you have to dig out ALL the roots that go quite deep or it will just grow back again and smother everything. Make sure you get every last bit !!

Bees- I cannot find a blog about bees but it is a subject I feel I must talk about. We do not use any pesticides in the garden yet we are finding many many dead bees just laying on the patio and paths. It is very sad.

Monday 2nd July- We had 7 parakeets in the neighbouring garden in East Barnet village- Hertfordshire - very beautiful but very noisy !

Hi Adam

As there is a hose pipe ban starting 5th April in the South East I wondered if it does any harm to garden plants reusing water that has detergent (eg Fairy liquid or similar) that has been used for washing the dishes on the garden.

Does anyone know if I can use water using for washing the dishes on the garden if it contains Fairy Liquid or the equivalent ?
