OK, I'll try and get a better picture.

What's the best way of dealing with mullein or burdock?
When weeding, the best way to know if its a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull it.

If it comes out easy, it was a valuable plant !

I agree with agapanthus, it looks like a mullein, vebascum seems to be the name for the cultivated varieties.
 Don't know how to deal with it as I haven't had any, and if I did I would probably try to move it to somewhere out of the way because I think it is quite pretty.
I would have thought just digging it out would work, it isn't terribly invasive is it?

I had to dig a piece of this out as it was next to a plant, and the roots were enormous - I'm hoping it's not a weed but is comfrey......

Thanks for any help,

Jean

No, not at all which is unfortunate...I love 'em!!! Even tried to dig them up and transplant them to no avail :( Must have just cut the end off.

Have you looked at the link I gave to lesser celandine? It could almost be the same photo!

That'll be because it is the same plant ---lesser celandine  :lol:


Pretty, but very invasive and difficult to get rid of as it sheds tiny bulbils when you dig it out, which all grow again.

Nice behind the shed though  :D

Can anyone tell me what this is please??
« Reply #326 on: May 04, 2013, 17:01 »
I've recently been given an allotment and have started to clear it. I found it was mostly covered in black plastic sheeting and carpet once I'd cleared the top weeds, but seem to have a lot of this plant growing out from under the carpet.

Any ideas please?  :D

(I did try to post in the "general growing" forum but there was no "new topic" button?)

Thanks  :)

It could be bindweed. Does it have white curly roots.

Any chance of a close up of the leaves?

You should have posted it under the "Which weed is this" topic. Perhaps one of the kindly moderators will move it?

The leaves look to be an elongated oval from enlarging the photo, so not bindweed / ground elder / marestail / dandelion / creeping buttercup.

Not sure what it actually is, though.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...
