I wish my neighbours had grown theirs in a pot as the darn stuff (pretty when you have a small amount) has grown through the fence and is trying to take over my garden. It is everywhere and as the pond and rockery are next to the fence it comes up all over the rockery and is even bedding down in the pond!!! Grr! Sue

Yes Sandra that is a good idea. They are really nice people but haven't got a clue what they are planting. They have a "mile a minute" plant at the bottom of the garden which is coming up all through our privet hedge. Wish i could get at the root with my secateurs Grr! john is in charge of lawn and hedge and he moans constantly. Love Sue
