Better a slow total death than instant dying of top growth and return of weed

If you treat well grown plants with glyphosate they die. You do have to let the weeds get a good growth on before you treat them.

I don't use any weedkiller much but when I do it's glyphosate and it works

I have a large ancient device that terrifies me but it is very effective on driveway weeds. I've never used it on weeds in the garden.

Any Ideas?

Something that looks like that has appeared in one of my nursery pots. It's not one of the weeds I nurture here. I shall preserve it and hope to ID it

Crambe Cordifolia

It's a herbaceous perennial not a shrub. It dies back to nothing at the end of the season. It's tall and impressive in flower, takes up a lot of space at that time and dies back to brown stems and rather manky(spelling?) leaves. It's in the cabbage family and smells like it when the dying leaves get wet.

It's one of the plants on my get rid  of list

Is it just me?!

I'm being big and brave this year and removing anything that doesn't look good. This is the theory anyway 

But when I get to all those interesting things I've grown from seed, and those that are fairly unusual and you don't see very often and those that some insect likes to eat......

We'll see how I get on

They don't all flower at the same time either, some much earlier than others.
