More mistakes by me than just thugs Thought I could control them. Live and learn...A "mile a minute vine"....ended up growing in my roof!
Put "mind ur own business" round my pond, it looked so lush and green and mossy like, spent the next ten years trying to get rid of it!
Loved listening to the "pop!" of the seeds exploding from my 5 planted Euphorbia characias. Knew I should deadhead but thought I would actually like a few more....could have supplied every nursery in the vicinity with them the following year.
Sweet violets, the worst!!!!!! So pretty, edible too. Thought could keep them confined to top wildish patch. Their seed heads explode too!!! Got into my alpine garden Had to dig out alpines, extract violets...roots so deep and resistant to pulling for such a dainty looking plant...replant and re-grit. Took forever!
BTW Bice to see you Keen Why is everyone so shy on this forum? Most I've been on post pics of themselves straightaway. Only reason I haven't is I don't have a recent one of me to post.
