Does anyone know what this plant is?

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!!

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.

This plant is rapidly taking over, growing in the borders, cracks in paving and pots.  Does anyone know what it is?  I wondered if it was a form of campanula.  It climbs and trails.  The photo makes the flowers look blue but they are more purple.

I remove about a third of the stems each spring from my Leycesteria and cut back the remaining stems by about a third.  This keeps it a manageable size.  I haven't had any problems with it self seeding.

This year I'm experimenting, I am cutting off the first seed heads to see if any new buds appear.  I will leave some heads on later to ensure that I get some seed.

My 19+ year old vine appears to be dying.  It started growing as usual in the spring but now all the leaves are pale and drooping.  I can't believe that given the weather we are having that it suffering from a shortage of water and the plant has been fed as usual.  Does anyone know what the problem might be.

We really do seem to be a murderous bunch, cutting slugs in half, squashing flies
