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


That's good to know. I was beginning to believe I was living in one of those weird horror movies about plants that take over the world. I just remembered we had had a conversation last year (I think) about how it traveled around. BTW, I pulled out a baby rose bush from my brick steps this morning.

Zem, B&B does the same thing in my yard. I have to really get after it
in the spring or it will take over the bed.

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?  Kitty

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 dead?

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
down
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
gooseneck
that I planned on eradicating!
