Hyacinth help needed

Hi Nick, just cut off the dead ones at the base, the little ones will then come up.

What the heck is this?

I think Bilje could be right, have a look at this

Jack, this internet page from Homebase explains how tall and how wide it will grow and advises a barrier.

Epsom Salts

Nope, only pharmacy portions available, 200 gr for £2.50! Will check pharmacy here, they may have it and as said earlier on, you don't need much, so it will have to do.

Thanks for the link, Dove, but I think postage from USA to Switzerland would cost a fortune. Will go and have a look on Amazon Germany, they might have it.

Rotavator to tame paddock? Will it work?

This isn't a joke, but if the paddock is fenced, could you "borrow" a goat from somewhere, they will eat up anything, from thistles to brambles!?

Thanks for the info Bob. Mine is behind the pond and has about 3 feet each side to grow into. By the time it gets too big, I probably won't be around anymore!

or most good garden centres 

What an amazing amount of garden goodies you can get in the UK, and so cheap too, I do envy you. Can't get half the things like that here! Still, at least Tomato Fertilizer is available, got to be grateful for small mercies!

Attacking pampas

I have a question re pampas grass too. I planted one last year, it has one "flower" and is about 25cm across. Do I cut the lot down now or just leave it until it gets bigger?
