I was given an overgrown flat of Dianthus ‘Telstar Mix’ and thought it would cover the ground while I decided on more permanent plantings. So I cleaned the weeds out of this eastern half of the bed, added more municipal compost and tucked them in. At this point I was battling the bindweed by snipping off the vines at ground level. You can see remnants of the dead vines in the chicken wire.
