I started a garden a couple of months ago, my first since I was very young. I've planted a variety of wild plants and herbs, mainly from seeds I bought online. In one little plot, I sowed what I thought were thyme seeds (thymus vulgaris I think), but what grew there sure doesn't look like thyme (see image). Can someone help me identify this plant? It has grown about 26 inches in a month and a half, and it's just starting to flower. I looks a little like pokeweed, but it has green stalks, not red.
It looks like pokeweed to me as well
Phytolacca anericana, if you enlarge it you can see a flowering coming in the bottom left plant
Some stuff bekkie. I've seen plants I don't know today. Lots of tender plants at East Ruston, I only know hardy ones
It's all very different isn't it? with rainfall, wind, acid and alkaline and all the other variables.
East Ruston is right on the coast with lots of shelter belts. Very non-hardy plants there.
Here's a closeup of the flower, just starting to emerge.
not my photo, google images
We saw lots of those today
Thanks, nut, that's it!
I think the stems turn red later on
