I can tell you what rabbits don't eat - weeds! They always seem to choose the precious plants and not the unwanted ones.

Ha! Just caught one in a scissor trap. Evil, evil me! Let's hope it was the only one, it's made a terrible mess and I had already tried all the usual tricks to make it move on.

Can't see any link to Facebook?

Can anyone identify this weed?

What plants make up your hedge? A photo would be useful if you don't know. The treatment will depend on what is there.

I think the white flowers in Panda's first pic are Bacopa cordata, the larger leaves are a foliage plant but I can't remember its name either.

Wild flower hunt tomorrow in Peterborough - we are meeting at the Rowing Lake, Thorpe Meadows, PE3 6LN at 11am to park, and taking as few cars as possible into the city centre from there. Please let me know if you want to come so that we don't leave without you!
