soil test kit accuracy?

An alkaline soil isn't bad john. Alkaline describes the soil, it's not a criticism. Many plants prefer it.

I've always had alkaline soil in my gardens.

Guilty of overmanicuring gardens at the expense of wildlife?

It looks like Himalayan Balsam as well.

Don't let it seed and hoe the seedlings off. But if it's on other allotments or growing wild nearby it will be impossible to eliminate. It is only and annual so once you've hoed one off that one is gone.

I've finally succeeded in getting one of these to survive and grow and it's going to flower.
