Camomile lawn

Posted: 28/04/2014 at 21:50

Theoretically it doesn't flower, maybe it never flowers and those that do aren't really Treneague

Nothing is no care

it's evergreen

If it doesn't flower it won't produce seed so you won't get seeds to sow.

It's not much of a weed suppressant, especially early on

Not much good for anything except the lightest trafic

overgrown garden HELP PLEASE

Posted: 28/04/2014 at 21:09

I can see a Lonicera pileata in there, low growing, evergreen, small leaves. Nothing special but worth keeping til you've got something else going., unless you're doing a clear-fell.

Might be worth doing some close-ups of any shrubs and posting them to see what they are and how best to deal with them in the short and long term

Direct sow seeds

I wouldn't mulch, mix in some compost with the soil and just sow them.

Mulching is good around perennials and shrubs.

It might be an idea to get your mega-weed IDd so you know what you're dealing with.

Resolva

Annie, you probably need to start a new thread, this one is about Resolva and the rose experts (not me) won't be looking.

But I do know that 7 leaflets doesn't mean a sucker. and that suckers don't grow from half way up a stem, they come from the root

They don't look like lilac leaves. Could be a Prunus, P.padus maybe

Rose suckers

You could try the weedkiller on a glove trick, wipe it up the leaves. You'd need to be careful not to drip it on the plants you want

Cleaning plastic plant labels

I use both sides by which time plastic fatigue has set in and they snap. I slosh them around in a bowl of soapy water before the second use. Mine have a long time in the pots, it's shrubs and perennials I'm growing.

Stratification of Seeds

You can't beat fresh seed gg. Lots of those said to need a chill will germinate in days if they just drop to the ground.
