I'm thinking of planting Aster "Monch" but can anybody tell me if the roots "run".

I "inherited" a quite tall aster/Michaelmas Daisy when we moved in but it was an absolute thug and popped up all over the border  so I don't want that to happen again.

    I've had some of those thugs. Monch isn't like that.

    mine's dead Verdun. Don't think it could take the prolonged cold and wet.

  • I have clumps of asters in the garden and some have greyish stuff on the leaves which I assume is mildew. Do I need to take much action?

    it won't kill them but it spoils the look of them Mowmymoss (like the name). there are plenty of asters that don't get it .
