sweet rocket disaster

the internet is full of rubbish, anyone can post anything. 

Any plant species, where it's happy, will seed, sometimes seed a lot. Gardening is about thinning these seedlings out. It's called weeding, it's what gardeners do.. Sweet Rocket doesn't kill plants but massed seedlings might swamp something less strong. All down to the gardener.

I see those big pots of foxgloves in flower at GCs, not cheap, and no indication that they're most of the way through their life.

Sometimes they'll go on for another year but they're never as good in future years. I leave some to seed and dump the rest

collect and sow when ripe chrissie, don't save it, needs cold rather than heat to germinate.

I don't find thalictrums respond well to being messed about with. I only grow species so all will come true from seed and I let them seed

agastache black stems and dying

I have agastaches in some very poor, dry soil doing fine. I wonder if they don't respond well to food and water.
