WHAT WEEDKILLER?

Posted: 29/01/2014 at 19:32

ERIC FREEZER wants to know what weedkiller he can use in an area where bulbs are.

 

Help please.

Eric, yes obelixx is right but be careful with any weedkiller there.  You can't use now with bulb foliage appearing.  Tell you what, I'll start a thread called WHAT WEEDKILLER?   to try and get answer for you, ok?

Evening folks

The rain is causing more problems down here.......road closed for subsidence (mine shaft), a house partly fallen into another shaft, hole suddenly appeared on Towans, and subsidence problems in another village.  Sheer volume of water and saturated ground 

Friday is forecast to be very wet and stormy.  Must be a nightmare for those living in flood prone areas.

It's just better in ericaceous.  Not too alkaline, that's for sure 

Asters

Peanuts.....funny that I was just talking about your cousin peanut butter 

All asters will look like that at this time of year.  Quite normal

Do you have the name card ?

tracey, empty a perennial from its pot and take a look at its root structure.  then look up info on it..maybe online or here....and go for it.  so many plants benefit by division esp right now.  its not difficult and you get to know so much about the plants' behaviour

(isnt it funny?  if only people could be so easily divided.  I could sleep, work, sunbathe, eat, drink, drive, be at home...all at the same time.  I could talk to myself and.......er! Oh!  I do that already )

Herbaceous Border

Yes, but get some foliage comtrast in there too.  The odd evergreen even if small.  The odd evergreen grass.  And something for the winter.

Tracey, 

There will be many saying any fertiliser will do, that they are all the same chemically.  Organic fertilisers are slightly more costly but they contribute to the soil, are more gentle and produce sturdier plants.  Artificial usually produce lanky quick growth with little resistance to disease, pest etc.    Organic every time
