Could you attach flat bottomed baskets to untreated wooden 4 by 4 posts to stand in the pond below water level and plant up with pond plants. If you could place them in carefully you shouldnt damage the liner.

Unfortunately too small a garden to stop dogs getting to that area. A pressure wsher would lift plants in the cracks of paving. I will maybe look into something organic. I looked at the jeyes fluid site it doesnt actually say but an interesting site, a tried and trusted product. Thanks everyone

What's the weather like in your area?

Can anyone tell me will jeyes fluid kill plants? I want to scrub my slabbed patio area now and again, as we have dogs, but the problem is I have encouraged thymes and other plants to self seed around the area I wouldnt like to kill them off or can you suggest something else thanks

I suffer with the damn things I binned any compost in pots. I have found out they dont like ground coffee so I sprinkled some among my potatoes which they love which made me think of a decoy. I just couldnt get lettuce to grow so i cut up a potato, got bamboo skewers from the cookery isle in my supermarket, I pierced the potato with the skewer and slightly buried it, using the skewer I knew exactly where I had sunk the potato. I replace potato chunk when I remember. Well anyway it worked I now can grow my lettuce. If you find anything that gets rid of them let me know. They dont like sugar or boiling water either. I was planning making them a strong sweet cup of coffee.
