How long does Roundup last in the soil?

What have the Romans ever done for us?  Sycamore and ground elder, that's what.  They used to eat it. 

Before you use glyphosate, be aware of this thread http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/problem-solving/glyphosate---possible-problems/370174.html

 

Moles in my compost bins.

Quite - why not leave them there?  You really don't want them elsewhere in the garden - and they WILL go elsewhere nearby if they're disturbed.  I have voles in mine - again, better than them digging tunnels under the veg and eating the roots, except that they do that as well....

Evening all

Great pictures of the poppies at the Tower, Lily.  We're thinking of going there tomorrow - is it still horribly expensive?  And how  much of it is under cover?  cos it's forecast to rain for much of the day...

Are you cutting them down in Feb and giving them lots of leaf mould?  Mine have done really well this year.

Yes - that's what I thought.  Glad it's not just my opinion then!

My mum has a zonal pelargonium in her little patch of garden.  It survived last winter and a few weeks ago I took several cuttings (following Monty's advice) into a mixture of MPC and sand.  About half have taken....and the parent has regenerated outside

 Shall I cut it back again?  Or dig it up?

Now to watch the repeat of GW as I missed it last night,,,,

Chicky: I used to travel to Plymouth a few times a year and always looked forward to that coastal section, just after going round the Exe estuary.  Hope the repairs are standing up well.
