They will be slug food again whenever you put them out. Protect them with plastic bottles with the top and bottom cut out.

Thompson & Morgan - issues!

That is my main complaint with T&M seeds; their germination rates are awful. Yet so many seed companies can get it right.

Is this Japanese Knotweed?

I know it will be hard, but the best time to tackle anything with weedkiller is when it has a good area of leaves.

With knotweed you can also tackle it in late summer/early autumn. Cut the stem near the root, just below a node and pour or inject weedkiller into the hollow stem. Any pharmacy will sell you a plastic syringe which makes it easier.

Fourberries...what a waste of money

Dove, is so right. Save your money and buy blackcurrants, red or white currants and gooseberries, then you are guaranteed a good return.

Sounds fine to me. Don't plant them deep. Have to say I just do it with a trowel, but I always sprout them first in the greenhouse as the birds don't seem to be interested in them if they have a green shoot.

Ivy killing a holly tree

Cut off all that is dead and take a hard critical look at what remains. If it is ugly remove the lot and replace the tree with something else; either something different or another holly tree.

Cut them in half with a pair of scissors. They will be gone by the morning and there is nothing to harm any other wildlife.
