Hi greenmaid. I presume it has finished flowering now, so if it was mine I would cut it back. You could cut out any branches that criss-cross each other to lighten it up a bit. Unless the branches are very thick, I don't think you need to seal them.

A Cautionary Tale .....

Yes, defiinitely bamboo! Didn't know it was the spreading type and took over the whole of the back of our pond, turned up 5 meters away in the lawn, up drains etc. Took over a year to kill it and are still digging out the roots!

I did, what was wrong with it?

Couldn't give an answer because I've never done it, but know a neighbour did.

Sorry Bev - best not look; it's a bit like watching a slow car crash - fascinating while it's happening but the after effects are not good.

Birdy, re photos. I drag and drop my photos from desktop and get a lot of gobbledegook(?) too. I have found that if I completely mark the  goobledegook and delete it right to the end, I end up with the vertical curser signal in the middle. I then drag and drop the photo onto that again and submit reply and hey presto, it's in. Have to do a new one for each photo, but at least it works.

Well, it seems it moved to England!

please help weed taking over my garden

I would tell that neighbour that instead of hounding you he/she could pull their finger out and give you a hand or at least some positive advice. If that's not possible, tell them to mind their own business and ignore them.

I'm sure someone on here with experience will advise you how to proceed, step by step in simple terms that a novice will understand!

Chin up and don't despair!
