Bittercress flowers and seeds most months of the year. One minute they are too tiny to bother about, the next they are in flower. When you go to pull them out or hoe them the tiny pods fling seeds fly out in all directions. They smell of cress when crushed.

First time I have seen this type of weed. Any ideas what it could be?



You are lucky it's the first time you've seen hairy bittercress - it certainly won't be the last.  It seems to be the no.1 weed hitching a lift to your garden in a pot from the garden centre.

Reminds me of the time when some bright spark from Merrist agricultural college, had a clover lawn at Chelsea Flower show. It looked superb!

We got to chat with the chaps there, and they told me that the Queen Mum commented on it, but wasn't really understanding what it was all about.

So, why not a bitter cress lawn then? Every time I stand on it here, it leaps up again, so I might as well just let it cover the paths...

On the other had, both Pete and Dennis (patch neighbours), would also leap onto me brandishing implements of Growster Destruction...

Help with this weed
« Reply #111 on: December 19, 2011, 13:13 »
Hi,

I am hoping someone can help with telling me which weed this is.  It is so prolific and at times I am struggling to control it.

Can people suggest the best course of action to get rid of it or at least keep it at bay.

Cheers

AL

I've merged your post with a sticky in existence set up for this type of query, Al.

Unfortunately the picture is quite small and doesn't get any bigger when you click on it.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Sorry DD, in my haste to post I did not see the wood for the trees  ;)

I have tried to get the biggest size possible and re attached.

No its not really growing right now.  It looked like a blanket of green at one point.

Cheers

:D :D :D

I think that in the pic that AMc posted, the leaves are quite pointed at the ends, which matches Chickweed, saying that, they are both remarkably similar..

If it's chickweed, it makes good green manure - so no need for weed killer  :lol:
