Hi, my first post here so hello to all.

The Green Alkanet  seems to be taking over my garden. The bees love the plant but not sure I can cope the way this plant is multiplying. Any advice welcome

    I think it's a pretty plant. Whether it's a weed depends on whether you want it or not.... If I had it growing beneath trees and shrubs in a wild area and didn't want to plant anything else there, I'd keep it. But it is invasive and quite hard to control with it's tap roots, which resist hoeing. You could dig the roots out to control it, or glyphosate the lot to get rid of it.

    Another of those plants that I other people's gardens.   Such an intense blue.  You can try pulling it out or just cut back all but a few.
