@slj yes, this one is doing the same & will be dug up in the autumn winter & will do the same, keeping just a small amount, until it gets out of hand again! 😕

Lol! @carolgs you're welcome to as much as you like, but I have no idea how you kill it, as I thought it was indestructible unless you have a nuclear testing range going on in your garden! 😀

@jeatacake if think it must have been dog wee my last dog seemed to have a sixth sense to which were my favourite plants and would only pee on them he also killed 3 acers 2 of which were in pots behind another pot I watched him adjust his cocking position to get the right place, dedication to the death of an acer!!!! 😄
