Love your garden

Occasionally we need to look at something without adding other issues to it.

Of course, there is exploitation (everywhere) but love your garden simply does something womderful for somebody and this is the way to regard it.  

Reality soon hits hard when the news or other programmes are broadcast........people killed, abused and all kinds of hypocrisy amd horrors .......and that's just Eastenders! 

Love your garden

Ooooooooo, some hard hearts there!

Its meant to be emotional.  It doesn't mean the viewers have to sob their eyes out.  

For me,  a deserving family  gets something done for them that maybe is over the top a little but gives so much pleasure to them.  

It's not a garden programme really but when was the last time GW inspired anything?

Only sure fire way to eradicate bindweed is with glyphosate ......apply to any regrowth during the summer and again if necessary  and it's beaten.

My garden was full of it....my neighbours have it still.....but now not a sign.

A friend will not allow weedkillers on her patch so it's digging up bindweed.  It's impossible ..pulling it simply breaks up the root into lots of segments that each makes new plants.  I have thoroughly and meticulously cleared a plot of bindweed only for it to regrow again from tiny missed pieces

Apparently slugs go for echinaceas when foliage is young and tender.  Now they should be unpalatable for them. ..?

I have had a problem with Vintage Wine but I think I'm winning this year. It's looking promising having repeatedly cut back potential flower stems.........
