My neighbours dont want me to use my land to grow a garden

You are not actually allowed to turn 'land' into a garden without planning permission.

A lot of people fall foul of this when they extend their garden into an adjoining field without permission.

Your neighbours might be afraid you are going to develop the wood which they have had unfettered access to for many years.

Never buy T&M seeds because they are such poor germinaters.

Where did you expect to put the contaminated grass cuttings? Tips can't provide bins for every permutation. If you don't think they should go in the composting bin, don't take them to the tip.

I would imagine these programmes are made by independent programme makers, not actually by the BBC. As are lots of programmes, such as Masterchef.

They can only choose contestants from those that apply. If you think they are dire, let's hope better people apply next year.

They split into cloves - or rather the cloves develop - at the end of their growing cycle. You have just dug them up too early!

unknown red stemmed weed help?

If you want strong Glyphosate get it at an agricultural store. They may not sell it to you so get a friendly person who they will sell it to, to buy it for you.

And do not buy it ready-diluted at any store if you can help it - it will be very expensive.

Plants may take up to a month to die completely but the poison is inactive as soon as it hits the ground.
