Having been around my garden admiring my dahlias I realised that not one of the 17 odd varieties seems to have a perfume. Are there any fragant varieties?
I'm not sure but reckon my garden could supply all your needs
Geoff, I thought St Swithin's Day was July 15th, certainly hope it is as the forecast for Sunday is better than Saturday.
Lavender will not grow back if you cut it back to old wood. So really all you can do is give them a light trim and possible try to tie them together a bit to disguise the wood. Use any trimmings to take cuttings so that you can replace the old plants next year.
I can't see any evidence but it might be worth doing in case. Thanks
Will have to go down the chemical route on the block paving then. It can stay in a limited border area as it is pretty and seems to one of a few plants that can cope with living beneath my leylandii hedge. Crocus charge £6.99 per plant!!
Flamethrower might be my solution then. Thanks for everyone's help
Thanks for your responses. Having followed the link my flowers are more a purple colour but I do think it's very likely to be a campanula. I shall apply my usual containment methods. It's a shame it's got into the block paving as this is a real pain to keep looking tidy.
Lottie, vine weevils love dahlia tubers in my garden. I always wash off all soil before I overwinter them because they lurk right in the middle of the tuber.
