Re: Re: Re: runner plants

Well I know the names of nearly everything I've planted, my problem is
identifying all the wild stuff the birds plant. Took me forever to find
scarlet pimpernel in my wildflower book. And I have some kind of Queen
Anne's lace relative growing all up and down the tree line. I leave some
for the butterflies but it just gets everywhere

- some kind of wild carrot I suspect from the foliage.  Glad your sale went well Kitty - sounds like you had some fabulous stuff!!
