They don't take over though, they are light and airy and flower early. They are welcome wherever they want to seed in my garden.
Looks like a Spiraea. Not sure which one, there are a few with similar flowers.
Verdun, that rather depends on how big the bags are!
Thanks, looks a nice little border. Foxglove is still the best bet, let's hope it puts up a flower spike soon!
Yes, agree with Nut - it's a Cornus.
The photo just enlarges to a big blur. Probably Herb Robert, a weed, but could be some other Geranium.
There are calculators on some of the websites that sell that kind of thing, try doing a search - can't remember which one I used. Putting down a membrane of some kind first does help to keep the weeds down, but as the bark rots down weeds will still seed into it.
But it will take forever to rot down.
Could we have a picture of the whole plant? It sometimes helps to see the habit.
Not rose-bay, that has different leaves. Could be Broad-leaved Willowherb, Epilobium montanum, but difficult to tell before the flowers come. It's a perennial and spreads both by runners and by seed, so get it out now!
