    I spent a lot of my time last year trying to remove what I believe are flowering onions from my borders. They were put in by the previous owner, who had done no maintenance for 20 years. They have grass-like leaves, pink flowers, grow from white bulbs that are round, brown, hard and dimpled like golfballs in their dormant state. Again, for the fourth time, my borders now look like lawn where they have grown back so thickly. What are my options for getting rid of them to be able to plant up newly? Would rather avoid spraying the lot with weedkiller, but have dug down to a metre on several occasions and painstakingly tried to remove all the dormany bulbs and clearly failed. Please help!

    Just wanted to say how interesting the item was about Wormeries last week. I told my Mum about it and she discovered that she had been composting incorrectly - after many years of use. She has decided to buy a Wormery and compost properly as a result. Thank you for your enthusiastic assistance.

    Please could someone tell me the name of a natural predator for the lupin aphid? Alternatively, a means of eradicating the little sods would be very welcome - without resorting to a commercial pesticide. (Sooo tempting sometimes!).

    I have a white camellia called Matterhorn.3 years old. Last year all the flowers turned brown before they opened. I have moved it away from the south facing wall so that it no longer gets early morning sun and protected it with fleece over the winter. The flowers are just beginning to open and although better than last year still have brown tinges to the edges. Anything I can do for the problem?
