    Thank you for the helpful info. on gout weed, which I am presently battling in my garden. I am curious about whether I can rehabilitate the 3 cubic yards of gout weed infested soil I removed by placing it in a raised annual bed with no possibility of escape.

    Thank you for your reply, but if I weed it mercilessly as you suggest, will it eventually disappear. And by the way, if you are as fascinated by gout weed as I am, have you noticed that it grows underground until it hits the central region of another plant and then grows up, thus surrounding itself, so to speak, with plant armour?

    Thank you so much for the article on hardy chrysanthemums! I worked in a nursery for several years and there is a lot of confusion about these plants; I am near Brandon, MB and even the Morden series is not always hardy here. It’s great to find I have other choices to experiment with.

    Dear Laidback Gardner,
    Thank you so much for taking the trouble to share your expertise. As a gardener whose rhubarb fails to fail, despite my consistent neglect, I have been anxious to be able to use the leaves but had been affected by the no-compost myth. Also wondering whether I can line hanging baskets with the leaves? Will they last long enough for the plants to develop nice root systems to hold themselves together? Actually I’m trying it. Also wondering about using the leaves to basket up my dendrobium orchid. Going for that as well.
    Happy gardening / relaxing!
    Margaret.

    • Sorry, those leaves won’t last long in a watered container. Rhubarb leaves decompose very quickly. Same goes for the orchid. You’d need something longer lasting! So learn not to be affected by the no-compost myth and feed them to your compost pile. Best of luck!

    Understand microclover is invasive and squeezes out weeds and even competes with grass. ? Can you grow wildflowers within an area planted with microclover, or bulbs such as daffodils?
