Can you identify this plant

Posted: 28/08/2012 at 18:18

It does look like Saponaria officinalis flore plena. If it is then it is one of the worse thugs you can imagine.

Is this an ash tree?

Leaves look like Robinia to me too.

That certainly looks like the sort of growth one gets from a tree root. We get ones like that from a Greengage. Hard to deal with without destroying the lawn. You need to trace the roots back to their source and deal with them there. Be warned some roots can go for a very long way. Our greengage ones are now coming up 20 feet away from the original (deceased) tree.

The kind of rust which attacks mint is not  going to attack Raspberries. Indeed Raspberries are very tough plants and have few diseases. Pests,yes, Virus from poor stock, yes, but otherwise they are good growers.

Watch out for Oxalis, Bermudan buttercup. The seeds of this keep appearing in all the types I have tried, even after microwaving the stuff.
