Morning folks

Hope this is working today

Sunny and very nice here this morning

Couple of plants different from what I expected......labels got mixed up I think when i repotted. Not the end of world...varieties of echinacea but now they are flowering I can see the errors.  They still fit in well, I think

Keep healthy folks

No, Veronica is different.   I think they are of the same family....leaves, flowers and habit are same.  Veronicastrum grow more elegantly to 4' and are less floriferous but flower slightly later with more subtle paler colours.  Veronicastrums are the classy cousins of Veronicas!

To dig out bind weed is to propagate it.  Every tiny piece of root....well, roots.  Glyphosate, used correctly, will work

Tim, I imagine it to be very difficult to get it out of that planter in one piece but you prob will.

I would take a vigorous outer piece using an old saw and replant in John innes.  Someone will prob want the rest but I would take it to the local skip
