Thanks Dovefromabove . Although looking at your photo mine looks slightly different, not white all over but just in patches, and no purple flowers with mine either.


See original post

 Sorry, I misled you.  I didn't mean yours was 'Beacon Silver' ... just that that is one of many different varieties of lamiums.  


I have one which looks very like yours and has yellow flowers, but it's not blooming yet .....

Silver Surfer   Vigorous yes ... weed not in my garden  


I've got that one as well as 'Beacon Silver'.  I like them both and both are easy to control. 


Never paid £4.95 for a weed https://gardenshop.telegraph.co.uk/lamium-galeobdolon-variegatum/prod25002

Blitzing a garden rant

Nasty racist comment.


 The many Eastern Europeans I've met in the UK work hard, look after their families and have very good gardening, DIY and housekeeping skills, and are great cooks, keeping house on limited budgets, cooking from scratch and growing their own fruit and veg.

J Parkers rose delivered dead/diseased?

It's incredibly late in the season to be buying bare root roses ... mine are all in bud and many are flowering 

Help! Grapevine dying.

I suspect the same culprit as you Obelixx ... that freezing wind that blasted the UK at the beginning of the month....... not just the clematis and vitis cog. etc, but http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-39792774

Yes, one of the lamiums ... pretty things ... I've planted lots in this garden 'cos it's great in shade .. yes it spreads, but that's what I want it to do ... it's easy enough to pull up if it spreads too far ... it's not a thug and it's one of the prettiest things to grow under trees.
