The forum team usually comes up with an answer, or several answers, Dave. I can choose the one I like best

 

 

Guilty of overmanicuring gardens at the expense of wildlife?

It all comes down to taking responsibility doesn't it?

Responsibility to control the rats in your garden and the cats in your care

Dormant or Dead Berberis x lologensis 'Apricot Queen'?

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.

 Do I prune after flowering like R. sanguineum? and how hard?

I never use heat Charlie. It discourages some seeds and only tropicals are likely to need it.

I set cerinthes in a pot of compost, not deeply buried, around March sometime, in the cold GH and wait

I've never soaked and they germinate well.
