So, should the neighbour get rid of it? Is it ok to have in a garden, invasive or not? Her front garden is pretty large;20mx10m, mostly lawn and this cuckoo pint is just by the fence, next to a tree.

verdun, I totally agree about flax; it is the most wonderful blue, keeps on flowering for months flourishes in an area of poor dry soil and pops up year after year without being invasive; the perfect plant

busybee, I have some mecanopsis seeds germinating; so far they are about 8mm high they are in a heated propagator.

But have envy of your toms being so far ahead, mine have only just been sown.
