Wicker planter trough - where can I find?

Look for a willow-weaving person and commission what you want.  Ask at the library or WI offices for Speakers List.  Sure to be someone on the list.

Mine were not soaked and they've been in for three years now and they come up Spring after Spring.

Forsythia - Will I damage it if I cut back hard now?

Posted: 24/09/2016 at 16:38

One third of Forsythia branches should be removed each year after flowering.  If you cut it to the ground now you will lose next year's flowers (shame) but you won't kill the shrub. 

Sorry but I used Weedkiller

Decent weedkiller based on Glyphosate takes a month to kill the weeds.  Was the dilution correct?  Have you given it enough time?

Asbestos path

Is it asbestos-cement?  In which case it is safe.  Do not be panicked as in the post above.  If you want to be reassured read up in the subject.

It does depend on the variety whether it will still be good in 12 months.  I suspect most supermarket garlic is sprayed with a retardant to stop it shooting from, perhaps, January onwards.

That's a mighty lot of garlic to get through!!!

When to prune a Magnolia Grandiflora

Posted: 20/09/2016 at 00:39

Magnolias don't like being pruned and may throw up a lot of unproductive 'water shoots.'  If you did it last year, do it about the same time next year if you have to.

Cobnuts are in season. How to use them?

Not quite Ladybird.

I thought the dyed flowers in Tesco were the pits.  These are worse.
