Talkback: New Zealand flatworms

Posted: 19/05/2012 at 23:04
I'm more than a little concerned that i may have found these little critters under my potted gooseberry bush. As i live in Devon you can understand my surprise when i read that it is more usually found in the northern counties. To that end i would like to know what to do about them. I don't want to kill them in case I'm mistaken in it's identification.

Talkback: Field bindweed

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:29
I have a very heavy infestation of this weed as i back on to a piece of field/wasteland. I've dug, treated, burned & even paved bad areas to no affect, until that is i came across a very old gardening Q&A book. It suggest waiting till autumn/winter wen weed is at it's quietest, unravelling it & leave it soaking in a very weak systemic water mix(a large bucket with a cover on it is required). I'm going to try this at the weekend as i see i have nothing to lose. Will let you know how this goes.
