Last year I used a watering can to water them in: this year I want to save time & buy a hose-driven spraying thingy.

You join in the conversations!  You'll find a lot of people with different knowledge bases.  I've welcomed you on another thread, don't be afraid to join in. Wine

I'll try that again!

The new/recently updated topics at the bottom will also tell you which conversations have been added to recently - very useful. The little red flags also tell you which messages you haven't read

I think an 'exterminate!' here & there in the garden would be quite handy at times! A tardis would also be useful, for those 'hindsight's a wonderful thing' moments...

Horse for courses, Joanna, I guess.

I am hopeless with machinery. There could only be one outcome, Joanna:

Ian spent all last year strimming ground elder but this year it will get hit with the tractor and mower Monster. I still think it will be Ian 1- weeds 1. We can't eat all that ground elder into submission.
