Thanks Edd, that should sort the fingers. Can't think of a way to hold the stuff on my ear lobe. Any ideas?

Those splinters will fester out eventually Forester and Gardenmaiden, they always do.

I won't let things get out of control though, thanks for the advice. Do you think some Magnesium Sulphate paste would help? on the fingers at least, might be tricky on the back of the earlobe

Still cutting blackthorn suckers, another heap of shreddings to do. Painful stuff, I've had splinters in two knuckles for at least a week, some in my legs and now I've got one in my earlobe.

its gypsophila but often gets an extra i.

There are many species, annual and perennial.

G. paniculata is the one I've seen being sold bare rooted in supermarkets and GC.

Hawthorn would be my choice as the main species. It cuts well to a hedge

I would leave out blackthorn, it's painful and it suckers.

Dig around it and cut through roots as you find them, once you can rock it things  get easier.
