Gardengirl, loved that series.  And the gardener, Danny, should be seen more on tv.

good luck with your patio

Derekp,,use Glyphosate in open ground.

in lawns use a lawn weedkiller.

remove flowers when you see them too.

some may suggest digging dandelions but they have such a long tap root that this rarely works.

AlexX, it's good to have that mental image of your garden in summer.  It helps you get better every year. careful!  Gardening is addictive 

Fingers crossed, you will have fine weather tomorrow

no, not too late to prune.  Good time to do it.

yes, it is a short lived plant and, in my experience, the roots do not go very deep at all.
