If the stems are triangular in profile then it well could be Carex pendula which is an awful seed weed.

New beds and couch grass

Not easy, unless you can separate the couch and get weedkiller on it, without touching the plants. Otherwise, you have to do what we are doing at present. Grow the plants on in the pots until they are strong and healthy. then take them out of the pots and wash all the compost off the roots. Tease out the couch grass roots and repot the plants. Do this until there is no more couch appearing. Time consuming, but it works, eventually.

And watch out for Vine weevils in the roots. Many, if not all, succulents dislike insecticides, so spraying is not a good idea.

Problem- Coxs Pippin

We get it most years and as long as we spray early enough, it does not affect the fruit. However, unsprayed the apples do get covered in the Scab. They can still be edible if peeled.

What's this? Flower in lawn...

Not sure but it could be Ladies Smock.Cardamine pratensis.

Looks like Apple scab. This is one of the many forms of spot causing fungus which attack almost every plant there is. Spray with Copper sulphate (if you can get it still).
