How long after lawn feed and weed killer can I plant things?

Am I being thick? I can't see a weedkiller in that list of contents. Looks like NPK and some ferrous sulphate, nothing deadly.

What was the poison Paperflowers? they have different times for length of killing power. The packet will tell you what it contains.

Growing Under Plastic Sheeting

I tried that years ago and the mice/voles/rats  that undermine our garden had a great time eating the spuds and other roots.

I think we have to live with weeds. I drive along our road in late summer and seeds from assorted compositae are drifting around. They're part of life.

Yes Olivedog. If you don't move it before the leaves come on it will be harder to keep lively. Hazels do have a big root quite early in life. Try not to damage it.

Plants may not be making much progress but they shouldn't be going backwards. The rain and moister atmosphere will be easier on them than the dry cold winds.

Hi Gerard

In the top picture the spires are gladioli, with nasturtiums in front. Might be an astilbe on the left, I'm not too familiar with those.

The bottom picture has dahlias

As long as someone tells me where we've got to I'll be OK. I'm an old woman who wasn't that bright in the first place
