    Berghill - I have all sorts growing in weed suppressing membrane - honesty, pulmonaria, hellebores, geranium phaeum plus weeds.  last year after my neck problems and op meant I couldn't garden for 5 months, they got to waist height and had to be strimmed and hacked before being pulled.

    I had a problem with virginia creeper,which eventually I managed to dig out,but as I liked the colour of it ,planted one small root in a large pot with an obeleisk,keeping it trimmed and contained it makes quite a feature when in full colour.

  • Has anyone experienced Japanese anemones changing colour?  Once upon a time I planted some white and some pink and the white ones vanished over time.  I do actually find these plants useful, so on moving house, I dug up a clump and they have been in a pot for two summers.  The pot has just flowered and suddenly I seem to have white flowers again (can't remember what I had last year - it hardly flowered and I was too busy to notice).  I really like the white ones, so I'm pretty happy, but am surprised.  has anyone else had this exxperience?

  • Yes! - I have been trying to find an answer to this problem and this is the first mention I have found. I planted 3 healthy white Japanese anemones a few years ago and this year they are all pink - I already have pink in the garden but I loved the white - can anyone help? thanks

    Jap Anem are the bain of my life.  Last year I dug every bit out (so I thought) and they are back again. I am painting the leaves with round up as they appear.  I can't do much else as they are mixed in with so many other plants.  My loam soil is fractionally on the acid side of neutral.

    My white one is just flowering now, daughter bought me two pink ones, I have a bed of the rampant one, but it's quire well behaved, I just chop back any bits that grow outside of where I want it. 

    I love them.
