Looks like Water Dock


Dig 'em out rather than pull.... them will have tap roots that grow quite long  :ohmy:

Thanks sunshine. I'm guessing they're as bad as the regular kind of dock then?!

Very similar in habit and worth removing when small if you can. Never let them flower  :lol:

They will get dug out this afternoon then! Sadly I have inherited a big patch on the other side that have flowered and seeded .. Guess i'll be digging their offspring out for a few years... :(

Glyphosphate It may of been mentioned before and I missed it ! But is good to add some washing up liquid to your mix for this ,it acts as a wetting agent so it sticks to the leaves better ,I have found it very successful , I have also heard parrafin  works as well but have not tried that :)
I cook therefore I grow

I doubt we can red lead as a seed dressing for peas and beans now either :D

Hi guys, i have notices some weeds/plants coming up on my allotment which wasn't there last year.  I was wondering if you great folks on here could ID it for me.   :) :) :)

And if it's a spreader plant the best way to deal with it.

Thanks Dan.

There is a recommendation for mixing glyphosate with mineral oil, which parafin is, for controlling cut stumps and brambles.

Water dock is quite uncommon and usually only found in wet ditches or by streams. I may be wrong but I think this weed is willow herb which is controlled with glyphosate.

The glyposate manufacturers spend millions on researching the best wetters for their products, which they include in the mix, and then some clever dicky thinks they can improve on it with washing up liquid?

It's not willow herb - I've seen enough of that!

I'd go with celandine, of which I've also seen enough!

Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

I am talking about this one. Always a bit behind, that's me!

The latest one is certainly celandine.

Hi all,

My allotment is covered in this stuff towards the bottom of the plot.

What is it, and what is the best way to deal with it.

Thanks in advance.

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 !

Looks like Speedwell to me! Hoe, hoe, hoe. (or dig it well in).
