What caused the bare patches on the lawn? Is it the same problem?

I should know what that is chicky but I think dementia is moving in

That last pic looks so familiar

Boring as in loses colour as the seeds form and looks much like  fat hen. Fairly easy to pull up but disturbs the ground as the roots are quite spread out.

I've cut my largest one back a fair bit now it's reached that stage but left enough to seed. I like it and put up with later appearance.

I think when you get plants in front of that it will be much nicer than the uniform colour of the neighbour's version. 

But if it's not what you want and not what was in the agreement, that's a different issue

Talkback: Plants for dry shade

Tiarellas the same, they don't cope well here. If you have to water them if it's been dry for several days they are not plants for dry shade. Most shade plants would be suitable if you watered them. A plant for dry shade is a plant that can look after itself in that situation.

Has anyone grown Cornutas AKA(horned pansy )

I grow Viola cornuta in white and a mauvy colour. I've never picked up the scent, I'll investigate next season. They're the only violas I grow.

Yes, the pink one.

It's easy to germinate, seeds about, mine has been self seeding for years though I only had 2 this year. Attractive in its early stages, huge and boring later.

If it's just the one and you're doubtful then compost it.

But as far as I know nothing tastes and smells like a carrot except a carrot
