Which weeds do you tolerate

Posted: 03/05/2015 at 17:53

Thank you nut, I have checked Google images to confirm it is cinquefoil 

This is a giant PITA for me as I live next to a public footpath smothered in it and it is costing me an arm and leg to spray  (council do nothing ) 

Moving a cherry tree - yikes!

You can have fruiting trees quite close although it depends on the rootstock and the gardening programme Beechgrove just happened to feature this on a recent programme. You can catch it on BBC iplayer

Gorgeous chicky!  And that fencing and trellis you built to keep the deer out must have cost a bob or two

Funny you should ask this question because earlier today I was wondering the same thing to one of mine and saw a caterpillar rummaging near it. Google is your friend
