What are these plants? Is the yellow one a weed?

Posted: 29/03/2017 at 17:10

The smaller leaves amongst it are Cleavers, aka Goosegrass or Sticky Willy.  It can be a nuisance because it grows long and spreads over your plants and the little seeds stick to your clothes.  I'd pull that out if I were you

Its a Lesser Celandine - a British native wild flower - whether it's a weed or not depends on whether you like it or not and are happy for it to be where it is.  It will spread and is difficult to get rid of so some people just put up with it and enjoy its bright sunny face  - one of the first flowers of the spring.  It doesn't last long ... very soon the  flowers and leaves will die down and you won't see it any more until next spring.

What to add to raised veg bed?

I would use the BFB for the roots and use the manure in the other beds, or save it to top dress the root bed in the autumn.
