Growing veg with little space

Theoretically yes, how big are your containers? Salad leaves should be no problem, they will grow in a window box.

We got rid of ours by doing as Sam12 said, spray, spray and spray again, it took almost a year, but it's gone! But you must report it and get your neighbour to cooperate.

Agree with nutcutlet, as soon as things warm up a bit lots more fresh shoots will come up and on mine the new stems are always a silvery colour.

Had a look too, Dave, and couldn't find one the same. It looks like it might be a pretty rare one, so if you can get hold of one, grab it!

Ha ha, love this conversation! I had my first and only child when I married him, 42 years later and nothing has changed, in fact it's getting worse!

Tweezers for me too, tried Veet a couple of times, but it seemed to work like fertilizer, things grew twice as fast.

Have fun girls, and never mind the guys, they can have their turn later!

Hallo Steven, I agree with chicky, also, azaleas only flower for a short time in Spring. Can definitely recommend fuchsias, there are some lovely hanging ones, ask in your garden centre. They won't mind a bit of sun in the evening.
