    Here are two photos of something that is growing in my flagstones. It seems to be knotweed-like, but not exactly. It is often associated with the moss I'm trying to encourage. Can't seem to find it on the internet nor in a weed book. Any ideas what it is? thanks dt

    Oh oh! I have looked on the internet and found some information on it. I have begun eradication! It will be very difficult to rid it throughout all the various pathways I have, but I'll make a start and try to get rid of much as possible now, beginning with any of the ones about to flower. I'm wondering why it is often associated with the moss in the cracks, but it may simply be that that environment is enticing to both mosses and sagina. Thanks so much for your reply. Denise
