For me, agapanthus and convolvulous mauritamica.
Perfect together liking same conditions
If you haven't grown this hardy perennial convolvulous then check it out. Velvety blue cascading flowers all summer

Hello happymarion,
I realised libertias were inherently,invasive but before purchase, did some,checking on goldfinger, and the Taupo series to see if they would be better behaved. I've had them for couple to three years, splitting one, and so far they are tidy and compact with no sign of running. I remove flowers anyway as I think they spoil the leaves.
I bow to,your knowledge and welcome your your opinion how invasive would these "new" hybrids be?
I am pretty ruthless with invasive or potentially-invasive plants so I look forward your reply. They are such splendid, unique lookers in the garden though!

How long before I furtle in my seeds???

Maria,ask him what he uses. It prob is quite harmless......?...water based.
Just say you gow veg there and just little concerned. When you know hes due to spray can you put some polythene down?
Your neighbour is unlikely to take offence,if you ask him what he uses so put your mind at rest.

I use perlite though figrat.
Not sure vermiculite is as good for compost mix. Better for top dressing?
