Glyphosate works via the leaves. It won't work on a stump. You want 'Root-out' or any stump killer.

My friend Linda (who came to Castor House) would like to come as well if that's OK and if she's free. We were up emptying a moth trap at 7am and she hadn't got her diary

Berberis Thunbergii Question regarding pruning

Hi Paul, yes it's deciduous

I cut back a few old stems to ground level now and then. I'm sure it would cope whatever you did. Late winter would be my time, others may do differently.

Never made pear but have waited up to 18 months for a wine to clear (sugarbeet) You can get stuff to add to wine to clear it but I never used it

The leaves of the Zantedeschia which is what's usually referred to as arum lily are longer and more pointed looking and have a different texture.

That's good CP

How are you liking the smell of ivy in flower? I don't like it but others don't seem to mind.

It's great for insects. The pollen/nectar eaters are all round mine and the dragonflies are all around the nectar eaters
