Q. What to plant along a gangway beside my house?

I have a narrow strip of soil (about 2 ft. wide) on the side of my house. It gets partial sun/partial shade. Whatever I plant must be fairly contained so it does not grow over the walkway next to this strip. I am looking for some ideas about what I could plant between the patches of lamium. Or would it be better just to fill it all in with lamium? I want to fill it all in so it will be relatively weed free. One problem is that is gets little moisture from rain due to the overhang of my house.

You can, but I prefer to plant in spring. These are very hardy, and will more than likely survive a fall planting. Here is an article for more tips on their care:

Q. purple deadnettle

Hi, Part of my lawn, like 50 square feet, is filled with purple deadnettle. What is the best method to remove this without herbicide. I am planning on putting some edible plants here in the future and don’t like the idea of using poisons in my yard, especially since I have a 1.5 year old who may go into that area of the yard.

I actually plan on covering this area with low ground cover and I dont even like grass lawns that much. Since its like a foot tall now can I just mow it with my lawn mower asap and then figure a way to control it after?

Q. Dead Nettles

When my Dead Nettles die back the flowers leave a prickly residual sort of bulb. My wife says that I should clip them off. Should I? Would that help or hinder the plant?

Thank you,
Dick Scherer

Shear the plants back after blossoming in their peak season to encourage well-branched plants and a hearty second bloom.
