Problem plant identification and irradiation!!

Posted: 30/04/2013 at 15:21

I've got a bit of an excess of these. Every tiny little baby corm left behind when you weed will grow. They're not my biggest weed concern but I could do with a few less. I just keep digging them up and don't put the corms on the compost heap. I should think if you persisted in pulling the tops off, they come off very easily, leaving the corm behind, eventually they'd give up. (maybe)

Are these biting insects?

They're pretty tough aren't they? The forecast says that after tonite we haven't got frost in the next few days. Perhaps that will be the end of it. Hope so.

My efforts at lawn making all looked a bit patchy on first germination but turned out OK in the end. I blamed heavy rain for washing some about but probably down to my haphazard sowing technique

This is good for bees, is this the one you mean? I remember it as about a foot tall but haven't grown it lately.

I like lupins, never manage to grow them though, they rot or get eaten.

Also, lunaria, lily of the vally and lathyrus

Lathyrus aureus

probably H&S getting in the way again. It was a good idea, a cardboard box can be reused many times before it gets recycled

Spuds are good because you can get the couch out from round them. they don't get sislodged like seedlings would.
