Does a scythe come with Poldark attached??
I have never considered thistles to be easy to dig up. They have very long taproots. Good Luck.
How to make a holly hedgerow?

How do you get male plants with berries and female plants without? Or do you just mean some of their names are the wrong way round?

No, they only eat the leaves, which debilitates the bush. They can completely strip a bush.

Weedkiller, or pull them up, which is a simple job when the soil is moist.
Remember they are a really important food plant for caterpillars so leave some.
They usually indicate the most fertile soil in the garden.

They come up from the ground, so inspect the lower leaves every day and squish any you find. If you get a bad infestation you may have to use a spray.

Is it newly bought? Apparently they are kept in poly-tunnels to 'force' them for sale, but then of course they feel the cold when put outside.
Coddle it, and make sure it doesn't go short of water.

The request was to contact the RHS.

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

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.
