Wild violets

Lawnsmith recommend a ready to use weedkiller such as resolva or weedol (verdone).

I've had this in borders and the lawn for a number of years having moved into a property where it was allowed free reign. I find that I get rid of some then it comes back. I work away for a month at a time so the blighters I've missed sometimes set seed in my absence!

A repeat application is sometimes necessary although do allow time and dispersion between applications.

If it wasn't for the viola and suckling clover I wouldn't have much weeding to do!

I do the same as pansyface but use the plastic compost bin leased from the council. The birds don't seem to want to know these days though, a distinct lack of thrushes where I live. However since I started using beer traps these last few years there isn't as many hanging around anymore. Most of them seem to congregate inside the Phormiums!

Problem with black bamboo

Sorry, couldn't resist it! But joking aside you have to be careful who you buy seeds or young plants from. Some of the more established suppliers are bad enough and I would be wary of the likes of e-bay unless they have some good feedback.

Must go, I have some magic beans to plant!

I've been having trouble with mine also. It had a lovely yellow flower and now this has happened!

Just looked it up, it's called yellow suckling clover or lesser trefoil.

That creeping yellow weed on the lawn is quite prolific where I live also. It's a type of clover although I don't remember the name.

Verdone lawn weed killer did the trick for me and it doesn't leave any black patches! It is grass friendly but I just targeted the weeds. Either that or you can comb it up from the lawn with your fingers till you find the root but it is quite stubborn to pull up!

My front lawn is quite clear now with minimal effort yet I have seen some who hardly have any grass left!

I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous! 

I wished I never seen it

I once saw a pretty plant and decided to get one, wish I hadn't. Alchemilla Mollis! Self seeds all over the place!
