There is invasive and then INVASIVE. Many invasive plants are very easy to control by simply pulling up the unwanted plants. Some however are much more difficult. I am not sure where the Cypres spurge fits.

Happy birthday for Monday OL.

KEF., I have been looking at new GHs., there are some beauties out there. My looking is just wishful thinking, unfortunately.

Weather here is beautiful, so into the garden for me.

Have a good day everyone.

Just catching up with Gardens in time the BBC 4 series. It was on Biddulph Grange, interesting, had a very nice stumpery.

Weather looks ok for tomorrow, so pricking out, potting on and planting out, and then maybe some seed sowing, followed by a lot more weeding.

Time for a whisky, I am feeling a bit achey.

Sleepover sounds fun.

It is amazing at this time of year how rapidly the garden changes. I have been away on and off for about 4 days and everything is different.

Honesty and Doronicum flowering, look lovely together, late daffs are out [ Cheerfullness? ] and the tulips are in full sway, Princess Irene and Ballerina looking particularly good. Seems strange to think we were flooded in February.

Must go and cook tea.

Well I have caught up with your posts, and, you have been vey busy while i have been away. Glad you are spending lots of time in your gardens, or spending hard earned cash at GCs.

A few days away and this place tries to revert to a jungle, so a lot of weeding for me this afternoon, especially as I am off again soon, taking the OH to Venice [ big bday. and wedding anniversary ]

Glad your Meconopsis is growing KEF.

OL., you should be really proud, your son has great taste.

We were coming home very late last night from my sisters and were playing Marvin Gayes greatest hits. What a voice.

COYS. Fan for 50 years. Used to go a lot, mainly to away games as WHL, abit far from Sheffield. Not going so much now.

My love doesnt change, it still spoils my day when they lose, although I dont sulk and refuse to out as I did.

Not sure why I go, as I usually get so wound up I hate it. Even if we are winnig 3-0 with 10 to go, I am sure we will lose; whereas my mate even if we are 3-0 down with 10 to go, is sure we will win.
