Please Help.... Nasty Weed

To D Taylor I wish you the best of luck, just keep at them you will win in the end, I read a tip But I can not remember where, It was pour salt on the root, then pour boiling water on it, I have not tried it but at least It is something to try, I think that the boiling water may work on its own it may cook it, but try anything once.

Try and pull the weeds up as they poke their heads out of the soil, if they are tiny you can pull them up easier, but do not compost them burn them, same with the dandelion flowers do not let the seeds spread, we see the council spaces, they cut the grass and leave the cuttings, then all you see is dandelion seeds all over the place blowing about, This means that they are leaving a minefield of seeds that will be a huge problem for someone else in the years to come, including the people who have a garden in the imediate area, and will cost a heck of a lot more to sort the problem, than if they had collected them in the first place, these so called council gardeners should use a little common sense,

I just plant things, what colour they are is up to them, enough said.

Some people are to fussy.

I read in the paper you can buy lion dung, but do not know if it works, I have three stray cats I feed so can not complain if they use my garden to dump.
