Is it like this Markie ? 

It is job to get rid of, just keep digging it out, some people love it, its ok in a wild hedgerow, but I sympathise with you having it in the garden. Keep on with the glysophate.

Well you see Hosta, Lyn like plants and fowers, as mike calls them, not sure what that is, but hey ho, mike doesnt know a lot, Lyn saw that from the conifer thread, Lyn has seen 8 'i am leaving 'blogs from mike, Lyn thinks he should heed these and bugger off.Lyn doesnt have a physical impairment, just a bit nutty, with a back ache, but then I do live in Devon.mike is best friends with Daniel,, Lyn can make best friends on other forums. Lyn is on lots of forums. Lyn has worked hard. Lyn has bad back from working hard. Lyn has paid 400.00 for roses.lyn grows 2000 fuchsia cuttings a year ( Actually thats almost correct) Lyn has gardened with her dad since she was 5. If I started telling mike WHY I would need a Thesaurus. Not really sure I am the only one on this site.who dislikes mike. and all his boastings. Dont worry folks, when you get to be a GOW, you dont care a toss. about posts like his. I had all that lot and more in a PM so because I didnt answer that, he must put it on the open forum.

Either that or he's madly in love with me, and unfortunately, I am just not interested.DOM are just not my thing.

I see mike has spouted another load.... dont know what he was getting at, not really said anything except about light rights,, which as Pansy says, doesnt apply anyway. He has got himself a new friend though.

What is catching your eye?

Well done for buying that Pansy, usually I would have some really lovely shrub or tree in mind, clock the price and buy a box of 6 primulas

Go for it Peter, in a non windy garden they are very handy, naturally shady and for the time I had mine, I really loved it. Would be as well to put a pole on each corner, there are loops and guy ropes supplied.

They are good price on Ebay, and I bought 4 of these. 2 fit down either side of a 2mt long one. Or if you buy bigger you can get 2 shelf units across the back as well.

They will blow over, the green rips and the frames buckle, however much re enforcing you do, and we put some stuff around the bottom, concrete strips, long metal poles etc, they will give way. All the stuff was still holding down to bottom edge, the top just folded up.   Maybe you are in a sheltered spot then it will be ok,  mine wasnt.

If you can get one to stay put, they are good, if you put 6ft. X 2" poles very deep in the ground on all four corners you can fix ropes to the top, or wrap a rope right round it then fix like guy ropes on a tent. 

For around £30/40.00 they are probably woth a go, even if only for two years.
