Japanese Knotweed

We had JK behind our pond about 8 years ago, chopped it down, put it in the rubbish bin (our rubbish goes to an incineration plant) and sprayed copiously with glyphosate every time a bit dared to poke its nose up! Took about two seasons before it disappeared completely. But the bamboo we innocently planted in it's place was a damned sight worse! Again, glyphosate and more glyphosate, it finally died but are still pulling out the odd dead roots.

indoor herbs

I've had Basil from the supermarket keep on the west facing kitchen windowsill for weeks. About 6 weeks ago I took three sprigs and put them in a glass of water. A week or two later they grew roots and I potted them on, the old one that was root bound went on the compost.

Don't think your GC will appreciate you pooping in, Verdun!

HELP!: My HousePlanted Yuacca Tree is dying?

Posted: 14/12/2013 at 09:45

From what I've read, it is normal for Yuccas to loose bottom leaves. But it does need lots of light, best spot appears to be about 3 meters from a window, and can be put outside in Spring/Summer, starting in a shady place and gradually moving it to a more sunny spot.

If infected with bugs or mites, spraying a soapy mixture of water and dish soap over the plant usually does the trick.

Hi Kirk, according to this link, it is unfortunately not hardy.

Might be an idea to call them and ask, shows you are still interested. They can't do more than say no, better than being on tenterhooks!

Glad it all went well for you, Sue. Look forward to seeing some photos of the motorhome when you get one. Don't get one that's too big, can't get into some supermarket parking lots if it's too big/high, particularly in France!

Good Evening FORKERS

Safe journey, Brumbull and Albert, enjoy the sunshine!
