    It’s a willowherb. Don’t let it seed.

    Yes - whatever you do, George, cut the flowers off unless you want it everywhere!
    Each plant produces something like 100,000 seeds  :D

    They're quite easy to hoik out though, but keep an eye out for seedlings, and also the perennial plant as they look slightly different. It's fine if you have acres of room and can keep it away from more precious parts of the garden, but in a small plot they  can be highly invasive.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....


  • THANKS FOR ALL THE INFORMATION WILL NOT LET IT SEED GEORGE
