Sod's law

josusa47josusa47 Posts: 3,530

My block paved drive is backed by a border containing escallonia and buddleia.  I dig hundreds of seedlings of both out of the drive, but never find any in the border.  Does anyone know a better reason than sod's law why they germinate so readily in crevices and not in soil?

Just curious.

    The pacing slabs retain heat and stop the soil drying out so much I suppose.

    If I see a seedling I like the look of, I try to ease it out. It works -sometimes

    In London. Keen but lazy.
