Invasive vine-like plant

Posted: 22/07/2017 at 16:12

looks a bit like periwinkle, Vinca. Have you got photos of it growing?

Vinca is not easily removed but it's easy to pull some up with a bit of root and think it's removed

Where can I buy Erysimum 'Bowles's Mauve' wallflower seeds?

yes, could be great, just not Bowles' Mauve. Won't do for those that want a patch of all the same plant.

Portugese Laurel

mine get nothing except rain when it rains. Very alkaline soil. The Portugal laurel is much better than Prunus laurocerasus in this respect

If you don't cut off the dead top you risk it rotting and the rot spreading to the rest of the plant and preventing the new growth filling in the gap.

Plant ID, please

Very different flowers, but white for both.

Plant World seeds say they've developed a strain that does produce seed. But is it really Bowles' Mauve if BM is sterile?

they aren't saying that you will get Bowles' Mauve from them.

that would be my approach

Planting lysmchia Seeds

I'm sure the timing isn't that precise. I'm sowing perennials now as seed ripens. Perennials take longer than annuals to get going (mostly) so I always start them in pots and grow them on a bit before planting out. In my garden they could easily be overcome by weeds or dislodged with the weeds.
