On the whole I've no objection to "hairy"  ::) but the bittercress plant version is a different subject altogether!  :mad:

Never saw it in my garden until about 5 years ago (I'm guessing it came in with a bought pot plant - only good news is that it pulls out very easily.)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

Bluebells? Montbretia? Or do they smell oniony/garlicky?

I've been digging stuff like this all afternoon and it is montbretia. Lots of bulbs clustered together with grass roots intertwined.

So digging out my jungle still and finding all sorts in it! Some treasures (rhubarb crowns), lots of junk (rusty metal, plastic bags and bits of packaging) but mostly nettles, ivy and bindweed. I have found 2 plants of this though. Any ideas if it is friend or foe before I pull it out?






And I think this is the same but smaller:

Looks a bit like burdock and if so definately foe with a 2 foot tap root!
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've just looked at burdock images online and I don't think it is that - but if that ends up being people's best guess l Will get it pulled up this week

What you have there is Onion couch. Instead of spreading by creeping rhizomes onion couch form chains of corms that break off when you cultivate. They are not killed by drying out and can stay dormant in the soil for a couple of years. It also seeds prolifically if you leave it to flower. I think it in fact a sub species of tall oat grass.

Difficult to eradicate by cultivation but glyphosate kills it. The trick is to get them to sprout.

I've been away on business for the last week and a half and my plot has gone nuts with weeds. I can hoe it easily, but want to know what I'm dealing with. I think there maybe a some veg in there leftover from the previous years tenant:

No 1 - is this a veg? Just above this I can see one of my bean plants popping through):


No 2 - really for context:


No 3:


No 4:


No 5:


Thanks!

1 Looks like borage. Are the leaves very rough?

3,4,&5 have lots of fat hen. You can eat it but most people don't. Pull it up and straight into the compost before it flowers again (It's the one with the slightly glaucous leaves that have wavy edges) Grows really fast

Thanks.  I'm going to be down there tomorrow, so hopefully will be able to clear this all up.  I cannot believe how fast all this came through.  The plot wasn't well looked after by the previous owner and it was left to go to weeds/seeds, so I'm assuming there was little I could do but wit for all of this to come up to deal with it now?

Weeds are not something you deal with once and that's it.....it's an on-going job, worse luck  :nowink:
Hoe them off as often as you can - but definitely before they set seed and make yours and everybody else's problem worse.

If you mark all your seed rows it's fairly easy then to hoe everything that isn't in a row. Hand weed the rows when it is obvious which are veg and which are weeds. Good luck with the plot  :)
