likewise - I just nip off the buds as soon as I see them developing - onions still growing well

no apples!

seems quite common, I also have same problem. We had very heavy rain combined with strong winds just as blossom was at it's best so only got a few apples where tree was sheltered by an ash and a wild damson which we had been wondering about trimming back to let in more light - glad we didn't at least there are a few apples!!

Last year blackbirds beat us to the strawberries so we have netted them - did it do the trick? No now the mice have moved in!!

Compost, they reckon !!!

we have found the same probs with B&Q multipurpose, luckily we have found a forgotten heap of grass turf which we removed from a patch of grassland a few years ago and stacked in a pile - it has now turned into fantastic loam.

My husband also got a bit carried away with composting a neighbours horse manure - he filled all three compost bays before I couls stop him!!

how do I get rid of

Hogweed seems to be everywhere in my garden, I always remove flower heads before they can seed but each year there seem to be more and more throughout my garden, which is quite large. I have tried digging them out but they have such long roots I rarely succeed in getting them out completely then of course  they just come back! I have tried spotting them on their leaves with a systemic weed killer and I cut them back to the ground when I spy them. Anybody got any solutions?.
