I couldn't tell whether anybody replied to Alberto's query about using
vinegar on weeds.
Yes, it works on most but not all weeds. Spray cooking vinegar (5% acidity
as sold in the USA) on young weed seedlings. It seems less effective on
older seedlings or plants, especially dandelions.

By the way, judging by the number of people writing me privately for
unobtainable plant material, this is by far the most gullible plant group to
which I subscribe.
