So long as you are sure it is not a hybrid, in which case it will not have offspring like the parent.

Water Butt Solutions - How much do i need, and other questions

Posted: 20/05/2014 at 16:10

Lawns don't need water.  If they go very dry they will recover when we have autumn rains.  Most native trees don't need water either.

Put water butts on your downpipes.  You will be amazed at the amount you will collect. Then get yourself a cheap pump and you can move water all over the place.  I wouldn't sacrifice most of your patio.

Rotavating

Glyphosate becomes inactive once it hits the ground.  Just so long as you have 6 dry hours after you spray the glyphosate will do the job.

But do put the rotavator away or you will make the weed problem so much worse.

Early flowering plants for butterflies?

One of the most valuable plants is the humble nettle as it is a food plant for several kinds of caterpillar.  Flowers are fine for nectar, but if the caterpillars have nothing to eat they're done for!

Gooseberry & blackcurrant berries dropped off

Most likely they have not been pollinated. Each individual flower has to be visited by a bee.  If it isn't the plant has no use for it, so it drops off.  Perfectly natural.
