Rigger gloves not gardening gloves

Lightweights

we have huge concrete lumps, (useful for steps and retaining walls), agricultural containers, (plastic sacks and metal), loads of bits of asbestos, bikes, great lumps of assorted metal, carpets, bricks (some good, built a summerhouse with them). Washing machines, galvanised iron tanks (also useful) and broken up Tarmac. That's all I can think of at the moment

My neighbour tells me there's a Reliant Robin in the somewhere, he dumped it.

What Acer is this?

creeping buttercup. You don't want that on a rockery

Can someone help me identify what kind of mint this is?

spearmint tastes like toothpaste, quite strong

In my experience the naming of mints is vague, sometimes spearmint looks like what you have there, sometimes much longer, pointed leaves. 

I've never had one without a strong taste though. 

I think sellers make the names up as they go.

Plant ID please

Just don't let it seed

Rumex sanguineus, red veined dock. Came from nowhere to my garden, now it's everywhere though I can't remember ever having seen it flower and seed.

Quite pretty in leaf though, adds a little something to the lawn

I should follow the instructions. They don't transplant well. It can be done but it sets them back rather than getting them ahead
