When do i clear the forget me nots ?  They look so pretty and are doing a great job filling space, but I'm aware unless i pull them up soon, the seedlings are going to be out of control. 

when do you all clear yours?

I remove them as I want to plant something else or when they're threatening to swamp something perennial

they are pretty with their fluffy floating blue flowers but can be thuggish. they produce their seeds in their gazillions, so u have to keep on top of them. i will go with flowering rose's advice. they can be prone to powdery mildew too.

I've started clearing them to make room for summer flowering plants.
