If it is Pyracantha, the berries are very popular with the feathereds. Orange and yellow ones go later than red ones, we find.

Middle one is an Oxalis, possibly Oxalis acetosella which is a native one, spreads a lot.

Yes, probably Santolina virens 'Lemon Fizz'

Flame throwers

The gas type flame guns are very effective, but only really useful on hard surfaces or where there are no desirable plants. I use ours on  weeds which seed around as the heat kills off the seeds even if the plant survives.

You really need to go over them twice too. Day one dries out the tops and then Day 2  burns o f the dried remains. They do kill off Dandelions though.

Never managed to set fire to anything except the incinerator with mine.

What is this plant please??

Or it could be S. graminifolia, very similar to S. columbiana.

Help!

Looks very much like a Knautia macedonica. In which case it should have small Scabious like red/pink flowers.
