Clearing a garden

Posted: 03/09/2014 at 07:09

Yes, Mr T, mine looked like that in April - a new sowing too.  Except mine had lots of weeds.  But its thickened up amazingly now and even outcompeted the weeds.  Even areas I thought I'd need to put extra seed on autumn are now well grassed.  So patience, patience....

garden looks a little bare.  Have you thought about a few shrubs? maybe a herbaceous border?.....

Hi Catherine,

i had some in my garden.  I rang my local council who gave me their advice leaflet and advised me to cut down and burn what was there.  They then came and treated the regrowth for me with the proper injection equipment and chemicals.  For less than £100. (Think it was £70 or something.) Problem solved.

ignore the adverts. Do it properly.  Ring council for advice.  If they can't do the job for you they may be able to recommend a local company.

good luck.

Really? Do you think it's absorbing moisture or something?

I planted some last year so will be waiting to see if they are still there.

I dug up some daffs at the weekend whilst planting trees.  Surprised me that they have shoots.  Do they normally at this time of year, do you know?
