I was just in the garden doing a bit of weeding and I noticed that the lemon balm has gone feral. This is in addition to the sunflowers and oregano which went feral a couple of years ago. I know that members of the mint family can spread through a garden but I thought that was mainly through the roots. The lemon balm was always kept in a tub and the new plants are quite some distance from where the tubs were kept so I guess they must have spread through seed.
I've dug them up from the garden bit. I am surprised they spread so easily. I'll have to watch out for them from now on.
I'll have to watch out for the parsley going to seed this year then. Normally I have curly parsley in a tub but this year I tried flat leaf. The curly stuff never spread (although I did manage to save some seeds and plant them myself).
