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.

A colony of bees have taken

Posted: 11/05/2014 at 18:41

PS we also have DOZENS of big queens all over the garden and in my greenhouse - poor dears, they are proving completely fascinating to our new puppy... no harm to bee or dog yet thank goodness!

We had these too, also in an old bird box!  They did no harm at all.  In the end we had to move them (bird box and all) because we were having a wedding in the garden and the bees would have been right in the middle of it, but they didn't seem to mind being transplanted and I really hope they find their old home again this year...
