bind weed and brambles!!

Posted: 29/03/2015 at 16:13

, I have had a lot of success of getting rid of bindweed, I put a piece of cooking foil next to the bindweed spray it with roundup and wrap the bindweed in it then just leave it wrapped in it, I had such a lot of bindweed this has taken 2 years to do I have been digging the flower beds over winter and it has nearly all gone if any does pop up this year it will get the same treatment I have managed to clear one bed and nothing popped up last year hope this might help .

Can I train a rambling rose over an arch?

Posted: 22/02/2013 at 21:21

I once grew a rambler  up my garden archway ,and it really took off but then I just had to keep cutting it back all the time, because of cutting it back  i had very few flowers on it ,so in the end i had to take it out ,I now only grow climbing roses up it now which i can keep in control

Suggestions please
