Help identifying this plant/weed

Posted: 14/04/2017 at 16:04

Noooooooooooo!  don't use glyphosate ... the little plants are really good in a mix of salad leaves! 

Forsythia

Don't just lop a bit off the ends - you'll end up with a yellow shaving brush next spring.  


Choose the oldest branches and take out a few as low down as possible, where they branch off from the main plant.  Do it when the flowers have faded and not later.  The plant will grow some replacement branches which will flower next year.  

I.D please

Try reducing the size of the photos - that usually works. 

Is this Japanese Knotweed?

Bruise the leaves, spray them with glyphosate and leave for three weeks or so until it's totally died down and turned brown.  You may need to do it a couple of times but it'll work.
