Bindweed Roots

Posted: Yesterday at 19:08

If you do dig any roots up, burn or bin, don't compost.

Cheap plants at Aldi!

Trouble is the Lidl/Aldi staff don't know a weed from a flower, and I, for one, will regret losing my local nursery, who give all round value.

Not sure about getting played out, but saw some exciting new strains this week , recently bred and launched in this country. Loads of flower stems. Sorry but didn't catch the name, but will look out for them.

DG smothers hers with mushroom compost each summer, plus some BFB. I am not sure if mine are as good either. Perhaps last summer was not ideal for them?

I may see her again soon, so will ask for you if I can.

Moving after flowering is too early and risks loss. Wait until fully dormant in summer and before growth starts.

Pruning a Budlea Tree??

Hi, having now seen what you are up against these trees probably need to be pollarded. We are no longer talking about pruning a standard Buddleia bush, as per most of the advice you have received on here so far. I have never pollarded anything and others are probably more able to help. However it basically means shortening everything down to where they sprout from the main trunk.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
