Burning does not afect the plant itself.  

cut it all down, clear the site and dig.

We need not to be bullied though.  All chemicals are potentially unpleasant and we need to act responsibility. 

People need to use weedkillers at times....most of us have done.  We aren't suddenly bad guys if we use them or good guys if we don't.  Using glyphosate can dramatically help someone reclaim his/her garden.   often there is no practical option.

let's not force our (often newfound) opinions  (often hysterical) onto others.  ok?  

We can advise but not preach

this week France play England at Wembley. first time the score doesn't matter.  It will be an opportunity to show we care for our neighbours across the channel.   I think the mood in the stadium will clearly demonstrate that.  for a brief time maybe europe will be as one.

Gardening Australia is delightful.  See the presenter though.  All BEARD. his beard is bigger than he is but what a character.  The prog is laid back....aussie of course.....but, paradoxically, full of energy.  Love it
