'mind your own business'

Glyphosate will kill it.  yes it will smother small plants but it's wise to control asap.

poorly privet

Posted: Today at 12:54

There are different types of privet...different clones.  I have a hedge of wild privet.....grows on towans here too.  Tends to lose a few leaves so semi evergreen.  According to site and position the loss of leaves will vary.

Sounds like  it could be honey fungus to me.    If it is actually dying.  However, losing leaves right now is nothing to worry about Daintiness.  

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

My niece's  18 year old half sister is in bits ......her friend also aged 18 died in her sleep last night.  Too early to know why but what a terrible shock for her family. Puts my mum's death at almost 93 in context I guess. 

Meeting with the undertaker later today.  More clinical decisions! 

HELLO FORKERS!

Fritillary, your penultimate sentence clearly shows you are RICH.    We all get down and it feels like the end of the world but then life picks up 

morning folks.  Hope this imminent cold snap doesn't affect you too much

got a scare last night.  My Barclays online account was all over the place with funds missing.  Suspected hackers.  Then investigations showed Barclays were having computer issues.  Relieved that this morning all is well again.   My £5 million is safe

 

Dying Yesterday Today and Tomorrow Tree

Posted: Today at 08:46

Over the years I have seen "professional gardeners" mutilate and even kill all sorts of shrubs.   Customers pay large sums of money for Cowboys to come in without any real knowledge and destroy their gardens.  

Probably this  is an area that needs now to be properly regulated.

It's my birthday

HELLO FORKERS!

Light drizzle at times today but not too bad.  Not liking the forecast though.  

Igrow, the moderators remove posts for very good reasons.  Often because they are offensive or mischievous.  Their role is essential to keep forum functioning well 

still sorting stuff re my mum and decisions to make.  Been reading a book my mum was writing about her life.  Making me smile and see her in a different......even more respectful...way.  Her sense of mischief, her comments and her descriptions of the way things were so many years ago make wonderful reading.  My niece has pinched it now............

Hellebores

Posted: Yesterday at 13:02

some of my hellebores are a little late this year for some reason.  Others are as normal.  But, yes, loads of time for hellebores to do their thing.

dividing hostas

Posted: Yesterday at 13:00

Used to sell plants and dividing hostas was a regularly successful thing.  For me division could be done at any time of year.  However spring is safe and, as Obelixx said, a bread knife is perfect.

a large hosta divided and replanted as a group looks far more effective than the original plant. usually hostas respond very quickly
