Ah the poor things, I have a huge one in an aquarium, Brian Snail. They are supposed to be kept warn and moist, I am always spraying the tank.

If those two breed in the wild you will have to look out for your veg plots then.

Brian chomps his way through lettuce and cucumber.

I am wondering if I used the glyphosate correctly! 

I sprayed bramble, netle,hogweed and sorrel it died back right down to nothing, that was in the spring, Dove may remember when I uncovered those little hedging trees on that bank, well, having disappeared they are now back and looking so healthy, I have never seen such large leaves.

Mine never die down unless I dig them out they are there right through the winter. As verdun says, make a lovely bit of colour.

Thats it then, thank you David, they can merrily sprawl in the greenhouse, I have nothing else but a few strawberry runners in there at the moment.

The fruits are very rough ,prickly but I find I can rub those bits off.

Can you recommend a tall upright one for next year please.

That would be some veg patch Verdun!!!

I grow just nasturtiums and tagettes round veg. Nothing with toms, and chives in clumps dotted amongst the carrots.

Yes just pop something else in there, no probs

Can anyone recommend a grass for a novice?

Verdun, I would love it if you would post some piccys of your grasses, I would love a couple of those really tall ones, but they do have to be wind resistant, we are almost 1000ft up and very very exposed.

I know you can see them on the net but its not the same as seeing them in real life gardens.

Thank you.
