Ground cover plants?

Posted: 16/06/2015 at 19:09

i have a patch of ground that I don't really have time to attend to so I was just going to plant something fast growing for ground cover as the weeds end up covering it and then I have to spend time clearing it. So it would be easier to have something that  will suppress the weeds as well as being nice to look at - can anyone recommend something ?

Hi all - I have bought some raspberry canes and Im not quite ready to plant them. How long do I have to get them planted out? Where should I keep them meantime inside or outside? Thanks for any advice

keeping the pulmonaria but I think I may just remove the centaurea sounds a bit more bother than its worth. I do like the spotty leaves of the pulmonaria so it gets a reprieve

Thanks Gardening Granny - I was a bit undecided if I should keep them or just clear it out and start afresh

I'm a bit of a beginner and in the process of clearing out my rockery which has been taken over by weeds and wondering what these two plants are and should I leave them.  I want to fill the rockery with lots of heather

i collected 5 million (ok it felt like 5 million) Brachyglottis/senecio sunshine seeds this morning.  Would anyone like some?  It is such a gorgeous plant - although does take over when it gets established but Im happy with where is has sprawled. Dont know how easy it is to grow from seed but if anyone would like to have a go then PM me  

here is how it looked this summer
