How can I remove a giant phormium?

Does anyone know a cheap/easy way to remove a huge phormium which has taken over my front garden? I have asked a gardener and he is talking about bringing in a digger! Could I just cut away the frons from the ground level from the outstide and make it much smaller?

Other than weed killer, what else can you buy that will destroy and kill all plants and weeds in a garden, as someone has done it to mine?

I have a pot of agapanthus on a North-East facing balcony. It flowers profusely but the flowers last only a few days. What should I do to make them last?

I am moving to an apartment/flat with a balcony. I would like to grow some tomatoes. I live in the Midwest of America and wonder how best to grow edible tomatoes or if it is possible?

Ground Elder

Is there an easier way of getting rid of ground elder than digging it up which leaves lots of bits behind. It is all over the borders and in a lot of the lawn. Also I have inherited a large magnolia bush, I don't know the variety but it desperately needs trimming before it takes over the garden. When is the best time to do it?

Bamboo

I have moved into a house which has some bamboo growing which I want to get rid of. I can't dig it up as the previous owner laid weed membrane which was then covered with decorative pebbles. The bamboo has grown up through this so the roots are a solid mass about 3 metres long. Any ideas how I can get rid of it?

Anyone got any good tips to stop cats fouling garden?

Any bare patch of earth in my garden is quickly found by cats and used as their local toilet. I have tried using commercial deterrents but these have no effect. The best thing I have found is using boughs of a prickly bush I have growing in the garden but they quite often blow away and they look unsightly once the leaves have dropped off. I have had cat scarers which are supposed to work by having a high pitched tone which is unheard by us but not by cats, mice etc. I am continually buying batteries for these but they also don't have any effect. Having a dog isn't an option but I am sure this would be the answer. Any ideas?
