No, prick out is to separate plants that were all grown in a pot/tray together. To give them more leg room and fresh compost. Are yours in individual pots now? Have you got a photo, rates of growth are different from one rose to another. I had Rosa rugosa flowering within a year of sowing but some I had to wait 3 years.

Are they in pots or in the ground?

How old are they?

I prick out roses at the same size that I prick out anything else.

Plant ID help please

been to look. It didn't help at all, but I think you've probably got the ID there with Smyrnium

I'll go and look at mine, but mine is just the species, not yellow like that and might not help. That plant has often been confused with euphorbia on a casual glance and I can see how that could happen with this one.

Hmm, 

they do little damage here, I haven't killed all the natural predators.

I love my plants but I love the natural world as well. I don't feel my wishes are more important than that.

 That is my opinion. I think it's necessary to differentiate between fact and opinion. Many opinions are offered  as fact every day, it can be hard to find a fact when you need one.

Yes, that's a bit confusing when new plants appear in an ID thread

Just pull them up or off, no need to use chemicals.

Save a few, they're food for the orange tip butterfly larvae
