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.........

Lyn, love,your penstemons.  I have several ...from cuttings last autumn.....penstemons  ready to flower but still in their pots.  Dont quite know where to place them.  Prob plant a group of them and remove something else.  ???

Limp lettuce

Lindsay, try the torch at night method for slugs.  Pick any you see for a night or two and you will have good lettuce
