Thanks for the photos Lavender lady, I'm in my 2nd year of my garden redesign, it's great to have look back at pics to see how much things have changed.

To weejenny and Kate- my lawn has all but gone. It now takes longer to get the strimmer out than to strim and I have great big beds ready for loads of new big plants.

Lamium and Ajuga propagation

Hi Kate,

I had a large Ajuga growing in a pot last year, it had outgrown the space so it was trailing over the sides.Before I planted it in the ground, I took off the offsets and planted them in small pots and waited for them to take root and then I had loads of new plants.

Hi christopher2, Thanks for the info, the purple one I mentioned definately didn't do as well this year so will divide it and see what happens

Seeds for next year.

I've been stocking up for next year as well, the vast majority of the seeds were discounted, either half price or less. Think my best bargain has got to be 25p a packet from The Works. I've started collecting seeds from the garden this year as well.
