AJ - brilliant, have a good trip!
Maureen - I'll contact Zena and chase her up, I only have her facebook contact rather than email.. Will let you know later today what happens.
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.
Lazy summer Sunday bump
Bump for the first weekend of summer!
Colin, you have made me very happy, my plants look just like yours!
Very excited now about my first year melon crop (cross fingers...)
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.
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...
