Poppy mess

Posted: 23/06/2016 at 22:09

Trim it down now, it wlll shoot fresh leaves or die down completely. Split it up or take root cuttings in Spring. Just dig it up as it starts to grow, It will probably fall apart. Plant each bit where you want it. Dont expect flowers the first year.

What is this plant/weed?

Pull them up and shake onto some newspaper, and you will have seed to sow wherever you want.

Spot the weed. I dig that poppy out of the lavender bed every year. Every year back it comes.

The lavender were the plugs from T&M offer a couple of years back. Not quite open yet, another week of sunshine needed.

Flower ID please

I think it is rose bay willowherb.(Epilobium angustifolium) Pull it out before it seeds.

Plant ID please

I dont know what the yellow flowered one is, but to the left of it is a dock which def is a weed and ought to come out.

Can anyone please help with naming this plant?

Hesperis live two to three years. They produce lots of seed which you can scatter around if you can recognise seedlings and are not a hoe fiend. Perfectly hardy.

I usually sow a few in a tray, prick out into small pots then put in gaps in September. I have never tried eating either, although I believe you can eat wallflower flowers.
