Can anyone tell me what this is/might be? (The thing infront of the gypsophila.)

    Probably Melissa officinalis, lemon balm. Does it smell if you rub the leaves?

    Will just nip down the garden...
    ... I don't think so. I did so some seeds direct ages ago, and (can't remember what they were) thought these mind be them, but others are popping up elsewhere. I might have been nurturing weeds.

    My records say I sowed popies. Defintekly not those. Weeds, then I guess.

    What about Ground Ivy, Glechoma Hederacae. They can spring up through underground runners.

    A couple of other possibilities are nepeta and agastache.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I fear ground ivy maybe the prosaic truth of the matter. I should pull up before it becomes a problem... How disappointing.

    (I think if it were catmint, my cats would have eaten it and be off their little heads by now :) Although I suppose that would depnd on the type...)

    Thank you!
