Volunteers in the Garden

Generally I am happy to have specimens volunteer in my gardens. Particularly if they are recognizable and I know their habits.
However, this most recent specimen is so happy there it has taken over a large area of my beds and is twining around my dahlia and crowding out my lavender.
I am allowing it to remain as I think it is the delicious honeydew melon, but I am off to rescue my lavender now!
How do you feel about volunteers in the garden? Love them or do you remove them immediately?

  1. Remove them? Heavens no!I get the prettiest natural arrangements that way. Of course, I do have a heck of a lot of Honeysuckle bushes that sprout up EVERYWHERE! Want one? LOL!
