This has been doing the rounds for some time, but using those cheap clear plastic tubs as mini greenhouses is a good dual use/cheap hack.
Use sulphate of iron. It turns it black and kills it almost immediately and it feeds the grass. Available at every GC and shed.
I should have said Echium pininana, which is semi-hardy in the UK.
1. A type of fern, possibly something good, so keep it.
2. Definite weed, remove all of it
3. Tree seedlings of some kind, possibly a willow variety.
My inclination is to leave it and let it grow...the leaves are large and pleasant shaped, so worth it for foliage alone. It does remind me of a few things but also nothing in particular.
I think it is dead but does not know it yet, but also think it is worth putting outside and seeing if it grows or not.
The wall will be fine: Fatsia do not form problem roots, as per above they are actually quite weak and fibrous.
As long as you continue to appropriately feed your garden then wood chip has no effects on established plants.
They grow naturally at woodland edges, where they get full sun...so it may be not enough direct sunlight.
"If you have a smart phone, there is a free app called Garden Compass. You take a photo of the plant you want identified, send it to them via the app and they will get back to you within 24 hours with an identification. I have used them a few times and they have been spot-on. Good luck"
What would be the point of doing that and ID'ing here? We like these questions!
