Anyone recognise this mysterious seedling?

Posted: 19/10/2014 at 13:16

Yes, not good for you to eat it, but I don't suppose you would, would you?

I think you'd have to eat quite a lot for it to finish you off.  People have recovered from eating it.  It grew everywhere that I played when I was a child. I'm still here.

It looks to me like the annual weed Dog's Mercury.

Well, the sky is blue so there's another load of washing  blowing energetically on the line, and I'm pleased to report that the woodpigeons do not appear to have spotted the cabbage plants yet.  I've been keeping them away from the broccoli by sticking some sparkly seaside windmills amongst them - I could do with getting some more.

Is the stem square or hairy?

I've got mine  

If someone is removing them the newsagent should look into it surely. 

If I were you I'd email the Magazine Team at this address magazine@gardenersworld.com

Good luck

Oh Verdun!  Been there and done that!  Or very similar - but our trip involved a 50mile midnight train journey, only to discover that all was now well - so we went back to the station and got a train home .... they do grow out of it, eventually

How's that Sedum Spectabile you bought this year from Notcutts?  Mine has done really really well but now looks a very poor specimen, with hardly a leaf on it.  I'm going to try to take some cuttings from whatever leaves I can find.

Unless you have good reason to think that their current postions are unsuitable for them, I'd leave them where they are.  I suspect that they've been busy establishing a good root system in their first season in your garden, and that next year they'll put on a much better show for you.

Give them a good mulching with organic material this autumn, and feed with Fish Blood and Bone in February when you prune them.
