I thought you just ran your fingers through those grasses to pull out the dead stuff? 

Lovely May blossom Dove, does that mean we can now cast our clouts and plant our seeds?

I bought mine from Morrisons , I think it was 1.79. Tiny little inoffensive thing in a little pot, grew into a monster in no time.

My plant in the above photo was four years old and cut to the ground every Spring, it makes that much growth in a season.

I think the white one may be a bit smaller and easier to manage, but mine was the blue one.

 I'm in the middle of chopping this one down, this was about August last year and the thing was cut right back in the Spring. It was right over the grass and reached the greenhouse. We dug it right out, far too big.

Aha!  If you're expecting a visit from the M5 or M6 you must be near Birmingham!

I like chopping them with a trowel

Have they got branches of the intelligence as well?

What a shame.  Instant and deadly universal poison is just what we need to be able to buy.

I am sure if you need to buy it some old boy will have some lurking at the back of his, why don't you put an add out for it.

I'm being a bit thick!

Thanks Mark, it's worked.

Growing Roses on the patio. Planter or dig a hole

How many hours of sunshine does it actually get there, roses like full sun for a good few hours of the day at least. Maybe a rose isn't the best choice for North East facing.
