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?
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?
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?
Hi Everyone just new on here. I am retired with hubby have nice community - four of us just. Won awards for gardening, not. Sad really 😊 just exciting to achieve something at 64 does anyone enjoy gardening if so could you suggest a nice little rambling rose for a small archway? The last one I bought had too bigger stems. Thanks
