Fight fire with fire

Path & plant

I really like this plant - I’m not sure exactly why, but it does look like a bluemeanie special: it is hardy, needs little care, attention or water, and will take over a section of the garden. The only downside I can think is that it might need plenty of sunshine. I am looking for something that can take over from all the other plants that have taken over the meanie garden - push them out as it were. I wouldn’t like to pull any of them out of the ground (lest they scream [see point 7 in link]); far better to let nature take its course. I may take a cutting or six in the brazen manner that my elderly grandmother taught me when walking around her neighbourhood.

Here’s a close up view showing a purple spring blush:

Today I have “composed” a poem from Spam, in the fashion of Flaming Nora:

Getting back to the gardening theme, 1820 suggests we could learn something from Cuban organoponicos.

It’s a hebe! Break off as many little branches as you dare from the bushes and place 5 or 6 in plastic cups of water until they form roots, then drop compost (J Innes) into the water until it forms a mud.

Let the water evaporate over time until you get a nice moist compost in the cups.

Plant out in late spring (May probably ok)

Loads of plants for no outlay
