Weeds in my vinca

Lovely garden 

I've never discovered anything that will choke out Vinca so I wouldn't worry ... it grew wild in the woodland around my childhood home and it choked back all the other plants.  

I would pull out the larger weeds as they appear but not get stressed about it.  The Vinca will win 

Honey Fungus

I've not had honey fungus in my own garden so I have no personal experience to share with you, but I do know that Nutcutlet has it in her garden, and hers is beautiful ........... I think she just lets Nature take its course and tries to grow plants that are resistant to it.  

The RHS website has a list - if you have a look here you'll see that the list of plants that are rarely affected is the longest 

Good luck

Nora, you gave instructions about pressing the quote button once only etc. Mine still doesn't work and never has. After I press the quote button can anyone tell me what is supposed to happen? I assume that the post I am quoting should appear in the reply box? 

See original post

 That's what happens when I do it, but it does sometimes take a moment or two and the box goes dark...
