Can I kill hedge roots by burying them?

You could hire a stump grinder if you really can't dig them out. Privet seems to shoot up whatever you do.

competition winner?

Dove won an Alan Titchmarsh book once, but that was from the Advent competition. I have never heard of anyone on this site winning on those big competitions, people do though, there is a list of names and addresses of the winners.

Are you eating your home grown fruit and veg yet?

We used to call this month 'flaming June' years ago. Always a drought month then.

Moving them tubs and all is not an option for me, buying  other load of tubs for summer bedding is out of the question.

Agrre with Spanish blue bell cull, I do let them flower, for a while then chop the whole lot down, the little wot sits will still multiply and come up again next year!

Lyn, its not too early for vine weevil grubs, I`ve just had potted dahlias decimated by them eating all the roots off the tubers, so marc when you move your fuchsia I suggest you wash all the soil from around the roots and replant in fresh soil just in case! Good luck.

That's quite difficult for a bed grown plant though. You can wash those off the roots but they may still be in the soil, there is a nematode for these and they do work well.
