Weed identification please

Some people grow it as a wild flower, quite pretty, but may grow a bit more than

you are expecting (or not, as wild flowers are not stable like cultivated ones).

Weed identification please

Weed identification please

nutcutlet, I only took a hint from the shape of the leaves, resembling those of Polygonaceae!

Weed identification please

The first one is most likely buckwheat (Polygonum fagopyrum), but as I have never

seen the plant for real, doubt remains...

More ID's for plants in my wildflower border, please.

From research: plant in numbers 3 and 4 looks like Trachyspermum ammi (ajwain);

the last Picture seems to be common ragweed (Ambrosia artemisifolia)...

The second one looks like henbit to me (Lamium amplexicaule...)

Snatch a foot from the lawn, and you'll have a more enticing amount of garden floor!

If your lavenders are killed off (like mine), your garden might be too damp (ergo the 

presence of slugs...) for Mediterranean plants (that like dry soil and full sun). Look for

plants that also thrive in part shade, you'll have better luck. From my (sparse)

experience, Lou12 has been very happy with the choices given.

New driveway=new bed :-)

How deep do you want the bed to be? Less than 32" is very limiting, not to say

frustrating. You can always wash your windows with a hose and a squeegee

(that´s what I do!) and have something bigger to work with. A straight edge is also

a bit too arid, and won´t soften the lines of the house... A little slant can do wonders,

as well as something to create height, like a trellis (narrow as it may be doomed to

be), or posts for baskets.

Unfortunately I can´t read your definitions well for the remaining plans.

What is this Sedum?

Is the colour faithful? It could be a kind of rhodiola.

Verdict....your new plants this year

I'd love to grow marmande tomatoes, will try one day.

Abutilon 'Bella' is not exactly new, but at least, new to me! And great.

Short, always loaded with beautiful flowers, no pests.

Only have to 'uplift' the flowers to appreciate them better...
