It can be hard to tell if you can't poke about in them. 

Cracked open cherry tree seed and saw this. What should i do now?

agree, nowhere near ripe enough to germinate. If you do get some ripe ones don't crack them open, sow them and leave outside over winter.

Hoe it off and plant something else. If it wasn't that it would be another weed, something always grows, the art of gardening is to choose what grows.

Starting to raised beds from scratch- Weeds!

Yes to the first, fill a bed up with plants and unless you've got deep rooted perennial weeds in there it will do the job, smother the annuals and the seedlings. This only really works for good perennial leafy plants. Not so good for the annual bedding regime


I don't do 'lawn' I have grass and mow the weeds. Grass not so effective as a weed smotherer because it's not allowed to smother, it gets beheaded

Couple of plants to ID please

the bottom one is Linaria purpurea


the first does look like a fuchsia but they're not plants I know well

weeds are always there, weeding is a major part of gardening. pull them up, use a hoe. Weedkillers aren't the way forward, once you get plants in they'll kill the plants as well.

I think it's amsonia.


Susan, is this your plant or did you see it somewhere else and assume it was a shrub?

What is your weather like?

No thunder yet but otherwise the same as Dove but a few hours behind.


Very dark and I have garden withdrawal symptoms.
