Weed identification please

If you dig down about 9" all around the fences and boundaries and lay plastic sheets, old compost bags will do, the roots won't get through, I did this in some places in my garden about five years ago and it's still not spread. its fairly shallow rooted.

i have dug it out from everywhere else, long job but on top of it now,  almost.


New plants by division

I am quite like Nut, I divide any plants  whenever I want too. They always take ok, as long as they don't dry out in the summer months.

A way to attract slugs

That looks more like a rat attracter to me! 

I have yet to find a bird that will eat slugs, I collected loads up once, put on the bird feeder slab, they never touched them.

I used to go about once a month, got in free, but haven't been since last summer,neither one thing and another. 

I haven't seen an email about the Hellebore week, either I've  missed it or they didn't do it this year.

If you see a slug or snail

Good points Steve, and all those, malaria and all are kept in the virus bank.

lets hope they don't escape like the Foot & Mouth one did.

i am not sure if we were slug less that anything would suffer, there would be lots of other insects for creatures to eat.

i think worms would be the most missed.

Lesser Celandine, don't get me started on that, I have cleared tons of it from here in the past few years, finally got on top of it. Not completely, give me a another couple of years.
