Is lawn edging popular?

not for me thanks

I don't like the sharp cut-offs and the cliff edge and the gap between one thing and another. I like my garden to look free and generous with a flow between one thing and another

Coriander Seeds - How Many is Thinly ?

Ah, NewBoy. If only I could work that out.

If they were mine;

I'd dump the spiraea

Thin out the weigela, cut half stems right to the base, and leave the rest til next year. These are best pruned by cutting out the older stems to the base which gives the young stems room to breathe.

Do much the same for the cornus.

I don't see how you can stop them crossing Fishy. Maybe not let yours seed, just wait for the bulbs to spread.
