Anderson, I would spend the winter re digging your plot. Thoroughly.  If you can get some compost in the soil as you go so much the better.  The more thorough you are now the better...and easier...your soil will be

glyohosate, like any chemical, needs to be fully understood before use.  It works during the growing season, on green material and needs 6 hours of dry weather after applied.   Repeat applications only when you see further green growth. Glyphosate will not work over's not that sort of weed killer.  It's very effective if used correctly

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Claire, I'm a talker and always feel the need to talk.  However, people usually don't seem to want to understand each other, their feelings, or emotions or reasons. 

For me talking to someone who has the same desire to sort issues is so important.  You can't make people talk and forcing this can cause more problems

maybe just put stuff behind you Claire ????

Should I plant Victoria plum?

Posted: 30/10/2014 at 11:56

The issue with Victoria is that it's branches are brittle.  It carries a lot of fruit that can weigh and break the bramches.  I found it ...down here in mild S W ....silver leaf was a problem following branch breaking.
