Weeds in my vinca

Posted: 20/05/2016 at 06:47

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

Just been out and had a look at my campsis Nut - the leaflets are still unfurling, but they look a bit more 'irregular around the edges' than on the photo ....... but that might just be my campsis

.......... it's easy to pull out seedlings ........... Seedlings are easy to recognize as they have a row of little spikes on the leaves. ..........
