Horsetail is a born survivor, having been around since the dinosaurs. It contains a lot of silica in its stems, which makes it difficult for weedkillers to penetrate. The trick is to damage the stems and then to spray. Continued digging it up does weaken it as well. So a 2 pronged attack.

Morning all, my sympathies to you Bill, I cannot imagine what you are going through.

I am trying to stay calm folks, but i am being wound up by a certain someone, so I can only apologise in advance if I respond. One of my many faults is the need to respond to bullies.

Anyway, lovely and sunny here, done the supermarket, think I might go to a local reservoir for a walk and a bit of a bird watch.

See you later, hope all the workers have a tolerable day and hope the birthday girls are not suffering from yesterdays excesses.

If I have upset any of you I apologise, I keep rising to the bait from you know who. Perhaps i should withdraw for a while.

Tracey, dont forget some grasses. I really like Panicum virgatum, it goes red in autumn. Also how about Miscanthus sinesis Morning light or Malepartus. These are real feature plants.

Brumbull, there is a world of difference between David stating that he was using a google picture to illustrate a point, and you trying to pass off pictures from Google as your own. Of course you know this really, but just want to see if you can upset a few more people. It must be a conspiracy.

Flower I.D. anyone??

I agree about the stigma, I have seen quite a few Hibiscuses [ hibisci ? ] in the Carribean and they all have the long Stigma.

Clari, that sounds a bit unfair to me. A person needs a holidy to look forward too. I found that during my last few years at work the only thing that kept me going, was knowing when the next holiday was.

Its my OHs 50th. in April so I am taking her to Venice for a few days.
