What a fantastic little group that is! Good thing I'm a long way from Essex or I might be tempted...

Me too! Beautiful. They don't spread for me like my Uva vulpis. Maybe it's too dry where they are.

Aren't they beautiful? They obviously like the position they are in or they wouldn't spread like that.

Mine are too dry too - they just manage to survive. Perhaps I cold give them a nice mulch and mix in some gel crystals - that's worked for other things that were too dry.

Spreading so well, I'm envious. Thorney, I've never tried F. Uva, i will look into.

I too am envious because mine won't spread either, now I thought I had the right position which is below the hedge in the raised bed, these look to be in the same sort of place so what have I done wrong..

They grow wild in damp meadows and this winter apart that's what I don't have...
