You have been busy Lizzie
my plans have been scuppered by a buried problem rather than the light drizzle the dulled the skies this afternoon
this winter gone, I decided to get rid of my two large Acanthus as I want something more elegant, it's a great plant but ridiculously invasive if you're not on top of it which I have been but now I want change. Neither of them is less than 10yrs old and I've been digging out root since January.
That's fine on my soil and there are no other large plants in those two zones, except I encroached today and barely had uncontaminated soil, (each piecend of root will try to establish, so plenty of digging for me yet, and a summer of spraying. I knew this anyway but it may force me to pot up a lot more than I bargained for.
Still, only a few extra pots to get rid of this lovely but lethal plant
