Re: todays issues in the garden......

Today I noticed my Black & Blue salvia is coming up all over the place -- like all over the yard. I dug it up and, voila, it travels by underground runners. There were a whole bunch of them. I just put those babies back in the bed where they belonged. Can you imagine B&B being an invasive? I noticed, too, that my Phlomis fruticosa has multiplied by rooting everwhere the stems have come in contact with the ground. It's blooms are currently opening. In fact, everything is jumping up all over the place much faster than I can control it. Oh, and the creepiest thing -- I'm finding gazillions of tiny rose plants everywhere! They are just like those we call 'wild' with the little white blooms. Anyway, I don't know where they are coming from, but they have taproots that reach to China.

I really don't think that could be Turtlehead. Got a picture?

Subject: [CHAT] todays issues in the garden......

As I was cleaning up one of the garden beds today, seen these - what I
thought were seedlings. Been looking at them for a week trying to decide
what they were. (remember I normally don't get to my yard at this 'time of
year', doing other things for the last 7 years.)

Well decided that some of them had to go as they were in another plants
area....hum... this seedling is not pulling out very easy.... oops! This
sucker is traveling around from underground to everywhere! My current
thought (have had a few with this plant) is it might be Chelone? Does
turtlehead spread underground with a massive root system/reminds me of a
small tree root?

Well what ever it is, it has to go..... so attempted to dig them up but I
think they won. Going to try earlier in the day and see if I have more
strength to do this (was tired already when I started this).

So besides hiring some young strong person to do this.... any ideas? How
about roundup? Would it make it easier to do this after the plants were

thoughts folks? It appears to go down about 7 inches of solid root
mass/stems/whatever and it fights being dug up! I was ready to strip it
the 7 or so inches and just get rid of the whole mess... but it won't even
let you do a patch at a time!

Who can't wait to get to the other garden with the tansy and white
that I planned on eradicating!
