Hi everyone, i'm new to this! We moved in to our home aprox 2 years. We deliberately never touched the garden for 12 months so we could see what was dead and alive. To cut a long story short, we have many weeds, but there are 2 types in particular that are litterally taking over the entire back garden. We really are struggling now! One has a potent sweet smell with a small pink flower and the other eventually grows a long stalk and buds a beautiful orange flower. After the flower dies, it turns to one of those weeds where the particles blow off in the wind, and then they grow wherever they land/seed. They are even growing out of the lawn now. Here are some pics of them. Can anyone tell me what these devils are and how to get rid of them? I worry about the strong week killers as we have a cat.
thank you carol
