Posted: 25/06/2016 at 15:59

Hi


my new neighbour are going to spray very heavy duty weed killer in their side of the garden adjecent to my garden fence where they have a very dense growth of ivy, Bindweed and nettles. I have few climbers like Jasmin. Passion flower and honey suckle and lots of roses On the other side of the fence.


if they use a strong weed killer will this also kill my plant on my side of the fence.


your advise on what they can use so it does not kill my side of the plants and where they can start creating flower boarders very soon.


many thank

My dahlia is still flowering and new buds are still coming through. Should I cut them all down. And put thick mulch to cover in winter as I am not planning to take them out from the ground. 

I welcome all your advise as this is my first year in gardening.

hi Bob the gardener.

Thank you. My apple tree died last year not sure want went wrong. this year we had lots of pear fruit and now have only few. I.e about 10 on a whole tree...I have got the feed from the garden centre and have been feeding it and spraying the fruit friendly spray on the leaves too... lets hope that it does not affect the new planted apple tree.

thank you
