So will this lower plant do the same job as the larger plant I've just started to grow from seed in my veg garden?

Yes that does look like it, but the flowers on mine are blue and pink. Thank you nut cutlet. Nice isn't it?

Yes it is sort of like that but no dark spots and the flowers are pink and blue. It does creep and spread. I don't think it was ever planted in the garden, but I do like it. However, I don't really want something very invasive. What do you think?

I can't believe I've just spent the last half hour wearing headtorch and spearing 35 slugs with a wooden skewer. These beasts are really getting to me this year. I think they are living in the soil in the cracks between the flags on the patio and are merrily feasting on my growing rocket. I am wondering wether a salt solution poured over the patio would do the deed and if there is any reason not to try it?( unless you are a slug lover of course)

Can i grow clematis in a trough?
