Do you have to cut it back before it's flowered? It won't harm it to cut it, but it's usually better after flowering. I think it's a spirea.

It is something problematic! Mine hides under the wall and I still have it after over 20 years. I find it very tricky and time consuming to treat as it is in herbaceous borders full of plants. Get rid of it while you have the chance! As Dove says.

I get email notifications (when they work!) which takes me straight to the last post I looked at. I always wonder how it knows which was the last post I read.

Hasn't rained! Planted up 3 troughs and 4 big pots. Cleaned sitting room and 2 loos. Made spag bol for tomorrow - at son's request. Must make choc mousse. Nearly time to eat chicken in mushroom sauce in front of Chelsea - with first new potatoes!

Panda please give me some tips on eye make-up, it makes your eyes look sooo big.

I hope you have a good day, Marion, despite the weather. In Dordogne it was only 9° yesterday and wet. No gardening for me today, housework and cooking, 2 sons and their families coming for Sunday lunch tomorrow.

Think it's time I staggered off to bed. I'm an hour ahead of you. People with lots of grandchildren need a lot of sleep, the good thing about retirement and children who've left home is that you can sleep late in the morning.
