Transport needed for flooded gardens

Posted: 22/05/2014 at 08:45

We took Pongo the Puppy on a new walk a couple of weeks ago and he discovered the farmer's slurry pit.   With immense delight, and a dive that Tom Daley would be proud of.   He sends wags to Flossie-Flo.

Which Root Killer Really works

Posted: 18/05/2014 at 21:07

I use SBK (I think that stands for Special Brushwood Killer).  It's a liquid, follow instructions on the packet.  You can get it in any garden centre.

I applied it a couple of times and it worked well.

I'm trying for the first time too - but mine are only two inches high, just a couple of true leaves!  Feeling that perhaps I left it too long before sowing... but maybe they'll catch up.  Will watch this thread with interest and start saving my old tights.

I think they'll consider themselves lucky just to have 'plant'!

Any description at all, Maureen - whatever is easiest.
