What tree/shrub is this?

Osmanthus delavayi is what I meant when I said Sarcococca. Senior moment!

It's a horsetail, Equisetum arvense. Keep on pulling it out!

Honesty tips please.....

I only had one plant which produced seeds last year, and this year I've got loads of seedlings. The snails seem to love them, though.

Is it scented? Looks like a Sarcococca.

Inedible; it would depend on which species you have as to whether it would be toxic at all. Don't eat it, the cat probably won't either! This type of fungus is very common, it might be a Peziza species, there are a lot that look like the picture.

Don't worry about it, just remove it if it gets in the way of your seedlings. It lives on decaying wood in the soil and doesn't have roots as such. It won't harm your plants.

More Plant ID please

Not a sycamore - the leaves are the wrong shape. Not sure what it is though.

ID Please

It's extremely invasive in my garden, strangling shrubs and an apple tree, and snaking across the grass with its very tough stems. The stems get caught in the lawnmower blade and take an age to untangle. But I looked at the flowers this morning and was charmed all over again!

Help needed please

Yes, a willow - they grow very quickly,

It does look like a Geum, but that's not a shrub. How big is it?
