I wanted a big pot when I was short of funds so I used an old dustbin and painted it to look like stone, mottled beige to match the walls of my house.

What is your weather like?

We've had rain and wind since my last post but the last 2 or 3 days have been pleasant, sun and cloud, temperatures in the teens, cooler that usual for Dordogne in May.

I have Vinca Minor under a conifer, doing fine. But do you really need anything under them? You could make island beds in the lawn and plant pretty perennials.

Could they have been talking about the variagated one? I have some as ground cover. It's a thug, but nothing like the weed one and mush prettier. Deer don't eat it so if you have deer it can be useful.
