Thank you.  I am in my late sixties but still enjoy getting stuck in to the garden with a digging fork !!  It is rewarding if the ground is damp and you can pull at the roots bu it just keeps coming back !!  Will try painting the leaves when I have removed the bulk of it.  Any more ideas gratefully received.

Is there an easier way to get rid of this menace other than just a battle of digging it out?  I can't use a general weedkiller as it is winding its way round too many plants.

Can anyone out there help me with a way of stopping the neighbours cats using my garden as a giant litter tray ?  Not only is it disgusting when weeding to find all this excrement but they are digging up small plants that are just getting established. HELP

Thanks for the idea of coffee grouds to deter cats - we are plagued by them - digging up bulbs etc then not burying their deposit it is disgusting.  Any more deterrent ideas would be welcome !!

Best dwarf pear or apple?

I already have a dwarf apple and I am looking for a dwarf plum or pear without success any advice ?

When you plant them don't forget to leave the foliage on until it completely dies off.  I have had a lot of success as the bulbs originated from my Grannie's garden and I am in my sixties !!!!  I have heads showing on my snowdrops today - I am SO happy !!
