9cm plant - how to deal with it

I will agree that it's not good value - I'd keep potting that on for a couple of years before planting it out.

I'd go with prunus suckers.  As Nut says, it's what they do.  

Keep mowing the lawn regularly and it'll stop any new ones from getting to any sort of size.

Thanks Fg

Lyn - I think my achilleas can't have liked my front garden - funny, their cousin the yarrow just loves my front lawn

Hmmm, what can I buy to put in their place ? ...........   I've had my eye on a rather nice verbascum, and I'll be going past Woottens on Friday 

Panda, yes that's Wonky nearly three years ago - scrubs up quite well doesn't she?

Have other people's achillea's sprung to life yet?  Neither of mine have put in an appearance ..........

Oh yest, there it is

Like your style Wonky - get the council to do your research and development for you - it's what you pay your council tax for

KEF -  I've got a hat you can borrow

 Oh, I don't think it's going to appear - Wonky can describe it to you ... it's big and pink
