Plants that don't attract babes and wasps

Even those pom pom dahlias open eventually and show pollen, they would have to be dead headed soon after they bloom.

Where does the baby come into it?

Its usually only one or two on each plant, not easy to see but they are there!

I have stocks as well Verdun, only small at the moment, I will keep an eye on them. Thanks.

Ps. I keep a pair of eyebrow tweasers for such jobs.

I am a bit of an unconventional gardener, I dont take too much notice of what plants should be in sun or shade, I put in what I like and most things do well. I have plants that no one would dream of putting in full sun or shade.

I just use the envelopes that come with junk mail.

When I post seeds out to anyone, on the seed swap thread, I make up tiny envelopes from junk mail, turning the writing bit inside out, being a tight a**se I dont use new ones.

I think Lilac and Prunus are fairly slow growing, go on and plant any perennials you like under them, Some are only at their best for about 3 years anyway, and you can always dig them up and put them somewhere else when the trees fill out.

sow some annual seeds in March/April to fill in any gaps, it doesnt matter how close, they only live one season anyway.
