Gardening Tips from Fran

Yep…it’s fast!
~Glechoma could be used in a meadow setting but must be maintained or overrun other plants. It will also do some dry shade, but can a tendency towards mildew so it needs good air circulation and a drench with fungicide if you go that way. Shoot, it’s a good thing to do with this plant anyway, even if you don’t put it in shade.
