carrots and beets dying?

Fun though learning isn't it Mary?    thin carrots and beetroot when they are tiny.  I do mine on my knees to leave carrots about 1" apart and beetroot 2" apart.  I get good size carrots and beetroot.

Tact never was  my strong point Tetley  

trouble is if the neighbour wants to keep his kerria anything Ice does in future will be obvious.  For me, it's a case of doimg something now whilst you can.  Besides, I dont think sprayimg the runners will necessarily kill the main shrub.   I had the frustrating task of removing a kerria because of its tendency to grow again from odd runners.

Pruning Sambucus Nigra black lace

If you want the flowers dont prune your sambucus.  However, for beautiful dense foliage from toe to tip prune it hard every spring.

Sell them Hosta when you start up your business 

incidentally,,arums will also grow in a pond. they look superb there too. 

Anyone done any gardening today?

I cut mine to the ground sometimes.  2 years ago I cut it from about 15' to 4'. yours sounds very much like mime was then.....tall, lanky with big hat!   Cordylines will sprout again low down....from a single stem in my case to 3 stems.  You can rub out shoots not wanted and select where you want your branches to be 

I think I've killed the lawn

Yes, exactly hogweed.  That's my advice too 

HELLO FORKERS!
