    After flowering and then keep them well watered in their new home.

    They will spread about all of their own accord, probably helped by birds and mice eating the seeds and so spreading them.  I have them coming up in places where I know certainly that I did not plant them.  They can become very invasive if happy.

    I've got lily of the valley and I just leave them to do their own thing. I agree that they can become invasive but I just try and remove them if they get too bad. I've had them for years and they have'nt been any trouble.

  • thanx all of you and i,ll just let nature do its thing and see what happens, aint that the beauty of it all.
