Is this chickweed?

Posted: 22/06/2017 at 19:05

No not chickweed, it's Fat Hen - Chenopodium album - a common agricultural weed.  

It's also known as Lamb's Quarter and sometimes grown as a vegetable.

Pot Stand Quandary

Just get someone to cut some wooden blocks ... bits sawn off the end of some 2 x 4 would suit ... three blocks per pot.

They'll cut them for you in B&Q and similar places. 

Plant ID, Please

Pdoc ... what were we saying the other day, in another context, about the inflexibility of some medics and the need for a more holistic approach.  It seems to me that you're being set up to fail. ((hugs)) 

earth rings around trees

That's a much slower event over hundreds of years ... and actually the soil level doesn't really rise significantly because of the leaf fall but because of the volume of the roots under the soil lifting the soil level.

Sweetcorn leaves split

Possibly wind damage.

Any leaves?

Is it an indoor plant or a garden plant?

Anybody knows what plant this is?

Posted: 22/06/2017 at 17:27

It's a rose ..... it lmight be a rambler, or one sometimes called a ground cover or procumbent rose......... not sure which one .... have a look here and see if you can find a match

Yes, anything around the base of the tree, and over  the roots near the surface will prevent oxygen getting to the roots ... they need oxygen.
