Help identifying lawn weed

Posted: 03/05/2015 at 10:53

I think its sheep sorrell.  It is the worst weed in my flowerbeds.  Forever trying to dig it out, but it has running roots which get everywhere, and are quite invisible in the soil.

not sure of the best way to get rid of it in a lawn apart from lots of mowing - others might know

I'm told that in the old days they used to eat it to fight off scurvy

Nice and wet out there, but forecast to clear up shortly.  Like everyone else, we needed the rain.  Plan to get my sweetpea seedlings in the ground today, and plant up some of my recent purchases.  Everything looking very fresh and green out there - we have lost sight of the neighbours, and won't see them again til December (unless we pop round of course)

just been offered another cuppa and a bacon and fried egg sandwich ....would have been rude to refuse

GH babies wrapped up just in case ...but from tomorrow it all looks warmer.  Potted up some new verbascum Helen Johnson too.

loving that watersplash too  Might go annual shopping this weekend - need isotoma, blue salvias and marguerites for my summer pots - will grow them on for a bit in the GH in the space left by my evicted agapanthus.

sorry Winter - won't be joining you on the morning shift tomorrow  My turn for a lie-in

Fingers crossed Matty gets the ok to travel....you deserve a mini -break

Morning - not liking the look of the weekend forecast either  Maybe they'll have got it wrong.  But at least after tonight it looks like the pesky frosts will have moved on
