Can you Overpower stinging nettles with wild plants???

Posted: 20/05/2014 at 20:58

Me too. Stinging nettles are wild plants and they can overpower anything shorter or anything that starts into growth later than themselves. Anything that's already established will win against new planting as well

why are they yellow?

Has it been very wet? they don't like it too wet on heavy soil

I'll bump you up, someone may be able to help. Honeysuckles are susceptible to aphids but they're not that big and mildew. I've never seen anything else

I wouldn't water as often as that. I'd do a big water in the leave to dry out a bit, then another big one.

Things have their up and down years. I can remember a great diving beetle larvae year at a previous pond. I can believe 20 in an hour. They were going for fish 3 or 4 times their size. We had to do a cull. Now we have a few.

Newts are now the dominant species. 

Raised bed against fence

He should have left an air gap to protect the fence if it's wooden. He must know that, just taking the easy route

I think you should be assertive, don't pay him til it's sorted
