What is this pretty little plant?

Posted: 08/07/2017 at 15:39

this year I have planted Calibrachoa in two wall planters and I'm well pleased with them, i planted the single petal ones as it's better for bees and insects to get the pollen.

What's this popped up in my new bed?

Welcome to the lovely world of gardening it so nice that you and your small son are learning together.

your picture does look like a squash plant, do you have to move it can it not stay growing where it is?

it would do better at this stage if it's not moved, veg plants do not always have to grow in a veg bed.

I think the clue between loganberries or blackberries is the colour of the fruit when ripe, I.e loganberries are red blackberries are black.

Loganberries are red and look  like raspberries only growing on a brier like blackberries.

Not knowing what type of plant it is it is a bit difficult to advise, could you take a picture of it and put it on here then we can hopefully advise a way forward.

welcome to the forum and remember gardening should be therapeutic so don't over do it try to enjoy it.
