Camomile lawn

Theoretically it doesn't flower, maybe it never flowers and those that do aren't really Treneague

Nothing is no care

it's evergreen

If it doesn't flower it won't produce seed so you won't get seeds to sow.

It's not much of a weed suppressant, especially early on

Not much good for anything except the lightest trafic

overgrown garden HELP PLEASE

I can see a Lonicera pileata in there, low growing, evergreen, small leaves. Nothing special but worth keeping til you've got something else going., unless you're doing a clear-fell.

Might be worth doing some close-ups of any shrubs and posting them to see what they are and how best to deal with them in the short and long term

I wouldn't mulch, mix in some compost with the soil and just sow them.

Mulching is good around perennials and shrubs.

It might be an idea to get your mega-weed IDd so you know what you're dealing with.

Annie, you probably need to start a new thread, this one is about Resolva and the rose experts (not me) won't be looking.

But I do know that 7 leaflets doesn't mean a sucker. and that suckers don't grow from half way up a stem, they come from the root

They don't look like lilac leaves. Could be a Prunus, P.padus maybe
