Yes you can get white or purple honesty. There's also a variegated one.

Which shrub to choose

And what about a weeping broom like Cytisus scopiarus 'Golden Cascade' to trail over those concrete walls and break them up a bit, as well as keeping the bees very  happy and perfume your whole garden.

Agree with Nut.

 

  1. Lovage - wonderful in salads, soups and stocks
  2. Honesty
  3. Mallow - looks like the weed rather than the more desirable forms.

Not sure that I'd have used a propagator outside - in a cold greenhouse yes but not out in the rain. 

It's not a heated one is it?

Like the fish Pdoc

Even if the police were useless, at least you're following the correct course of action and not taking things into your hands - have you been told to record incidents or report them to the non-emergency number so that they can record them?

As Dave has said, spray with glyphosate then leave until the plant dies down and goes brown - only then has the glyphosate got into the roots to kill them. 

If you pull the ground elder up before that has happened the roots will grow again, and every tiny piece of ground elder root left behind will grow - that's a promise
