Hiya Steve, 

unless you have a very large garden I would not plant it. 

this is a vigorous spreader and I don't think a barrier will permanently keep it in check

 

Perfect weather

Hello GWRS

I use it as a treatment for gooseberry mildew and sawfly.  It is a natural product that doesn't interfere with wildlife as far as I know.  It seems to be effective.  It was unknown to me a couple of years back but someone here...forgive me for forgetting who.....suggested neem oil. i have used it also on hardy geraniums to ward off geranium caterpillars that can devastate them.  Seems to help with mildew on scabious too 

planted Ruffled Swan, cut front and back lawns....again !......and checked plants for health.  Loads of fruit buds on peach trees    Beautiful day, peaceful too.  A walk to the beach with Spike was enjoyable too so plemty of fresh air today.  

(whisper it........little voice in my head told me to order a phenomenal newish foliage plant.  I could not resist.  Intended to buy 2 but I was strong and ordered 3, er, I mean one )

Anyone done any gardening today?
