Posted: 30/10/2014 at 22:27

It's just one of the invasive plants I've found tricky to get going. I still don't have anything approaching invasive. 

What to plant under a tree?

Is there room for it to get really large, which it will, they're big trees. 

We made what I consider a mistake (OH doesn't agree, they made good firewood) in letting some willows become huge. When we came here they would easily have been removed. By the time we got round to it they were hanging over wires and road and it was a tense job

I'd never heard of this one so I had a poke round and found some growing tips

Do you reckon that's it Pete?

I had to dredge deeply for that 

No first hand experience, very alkaline here.

I've done a lot of garden visiting though

Lemon thyme

I'd completely misjudged the scale.

I'd replace that, it's worn out

I have some in the garden and some in a pot. I leave them where they are and the pot goes in a cold GH. I've brought it in already to avoid it being really wet when the cold weather comes. The potted ones have been in  their pot for bout 3 years.
