my friend's garden is being taken over by Trifolium repens 'Purpurascens Quadrifolium' (sometimes known as the purple 4-leaf version of Irish Shamrock). It seems to have rooted itself fairly deeply. Is there any other way of getting shot of it short of digging deep to remove it and putting down thick black weed suppressant plastic? She does want to be able to re-plant once she has eradicated it.
Recently I have been experiencing connecting to the website from the links in the electronic newsletter - has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas how I can resolve the problem?
Thank y ou
Thank you Busy-Lizzie, that's important point and will also help me make a decision!
Thanks Bunny - appreciate your swift response.
I've found it difficult to distinguish between these two varieties of Sambucus Nigra from the information I've so found online and wondered if anyone can shed some light on which of the two has a) more purple foliage and b) the pinker flowers!
You are a star, thank you Dean - you've made my day! What exactly do you mean by "inbox your address" - does this require me to put my address on this website - which seems a bit iffy?
Wow, that's great Dean. Unfortunately I can't tell from the photo of the front cover - the print is too small. However, you may be able to recognise it from the cover - so am hoping the link to it may help. Thank you so much - if you come across it - let me know what you what for it please? http://www.gardening.co.uk/news/article.asp?a=4950
Hi Hollie-Hock (love the name!)
Thank you for responding.
Yes, eBay so far has produced nothing, though I continue to look!
Oh I've done that too - it was Nick who directed me to the publications service. Don't think I'll have any luck with this one ...........
Sadly Gardens Monthly went out of publication some while ago, also the magazine service that sometimes keeps old copies can't help either. Good thought though and thank you for responding.
