Yes , definitely liverwort in huge quantities ( I have a biology degree!)

Slabs are in a shady spot by the house, facing west but not too soggy.

I might be inspired to try the mortar mix- thanks for that.

I did scrape it out last year- but it is back with a vengeance!

How about putting salt on them to kill them? It is far enough away from other plants to not harm them.

Any weedkillers good for liverwort, please?

On a very recent Gardeners World, Monty said to water a cucumber via a pot inserted next to the plant so the plant stem doesn't get wet and so be liable to rot.

Please identify

If you can grab the plant near the bottom,right at soil level, you are more likely to be able to pull the roots out and so stop the plant just growing back. If you just grab further up, it will just break off at that point and regrow quickly.

Please help! 

How do I get rid of thousands and thousands of liverwort in the gaps between paving slabs?

So much moss has appeared in my garden beds- and I don't know what to do! It is right through between the tall plants, and over the top of small ones. The beds are on a slope so drain quite well, but I know it has been a damp winter.

Any ideas, please?

Thanks for that too.

My rocket plants have done really well so far this season but are now flowering. Are the leaves still nice to eat after flowering? Should I remove the flowers and just keep the plants going to prolong cropping- or compost the lot and start again?

Thanks everyone for the replies. I think the consensus is that it is not a perennial in my part of the world and that I am best to continue to keep up taking cuttings. Sadly I don't even get self seeding going on.
