I've had that happen, but only to one tulip - I put it down to cutworm activity

Don't think it's any of the plants commonly called Wild Ginger.


Does look like celandine to me - but I can't see it clearly.

The toms, sweetcorn and squashes have been in the mini greenhouse with the top and doors open day and night all week. They've been tucked back inside with the greenhouse shut up for tonight - but that's all.

Rhubarb

Ah! Love jerusalem artichoke soup 


If you've already got those weeds in your garden or nearby, I really wouldn't worry about the rhubarb bringing any weeds in with it.  It looks fine to me. 

Anyone tell me what this is please?
