Removing stubborn ornamental grass

Posted: 27/07/2014 at 17:59

Carex pendula, pendulous sedge

Quite ornamental but a bit of a thugs, don't let it seed.

I can only suggest more brute force, possibly waiting til the autumn rains when the ground is softer

can you id this please

I agree with Philippa, looks more like marjoram/oregano to me

Yellow then brown, they're dying but it takes time. Glyphosate isn't cheap and it's a total waste if you don't let it work

Don't forget you need to allow the glyphosate time to work. It needs to be there til the leaves change colour . If you spray today and chop within a week it won't work.

Non- flowering Acanthus Mollis

I've had some of this for years and only occasionally has it excelled itself.

Some years it doesn't flower at all, sometimes the leaves look really good but then get mildewed. This year it had lovely leaves and loads of flowers but, probably due to all the wet, went up much taller than usual and looks very naked. Now the leaves are flopping and going yellow in the sun.

I don't know why I keep it

where there's life, there's hope

It either needs a bigger container or some ground, a good meal and some water..

and a bit of root loosening on the way
