Can anyone help identify this plant?

Can anyone help identify this plant?

 It grows about 80cm and self seeds, this is a seedling from my nans garden, but she has it growing in the soil and in the cracks between her house and path.

The leaves are green and the flowers stand tall and are daisy like, pale pink in colour.

Thanks in anticipation.

One of my cordyline's is filling with water in the core, is this normal?  If not how can I stop this happening, I'm concerned thatit might rot.

I seem to have lots of mushrooms growing in my garden, not in a specific area, all over.  Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is?  My garden has sunshine all day.

Potato leaves savaged.

Hi all.

One of my potato plants has had all of it leaves savaged, Am I still ok to leave the potatoes in the ground or should I now remove them as there are no leaves left?

They seem to be in abundance this year, I was digging over ther garden yesterday and there was a nest under my pieris.  In the two solar lights near the dahlias, both had nests in so they been moved into the wildlife garden.  Also the amount of red ant nests in my garden in unbelievable, a total of 6 so far this year.

Latest update.

I've been out this morning and found out what the problem is, "earwigs".  I shouldn have thought more about it really, as at the weekend I found a nest of them in a solar light near the affected plants.  I have removed the leaves and the solar lights as they all had earwigs in them.  Any ideas of how to keep these pests away?

Thanks all, one final thing, would it be worth removing the damaged leaves?
