Plant/weed identification

Posted: 04/05/2015 at 14:17

Can't really see well enough but enough to say not deadly nightshde or briony.

It may be something in the nightshade family, black nightshde maybe, Solanum nigrum. Come to think of it I have heard that referred to as deadly nightshade, (along with all the other nightshades) but it's not. 

 

Please help me ID plants/ shrubs/trees

It's a very clear photo. I can cancel the snowberry idea and the one I had re the snowberry relative. Callicarpa is a possibility but it looks greyer than I remember, (I haven't got one now). Hugh might be able to say for sure now. 

Is it safe?

I'd have them out in the day timeand back in for the night for a while before leaving them out permanently

The second is London Pride, Saxifraga x urbium. The grass could be anything.

Deadly nightshade is unlikely to turn up in a pot in the house. Onece the plant is gone there is no poison left behind, 

Disinfectants kill bacteria they don't affect poisons. It's gone, stop worrying.

Without a photo there's no chance of a definite ID

Iris in pot on shallow pond shelf?

Iris pseudocorus will grow in anything from inches under water to well above as long as it's damp. 

Here it seeds into dry areas and grows but doesn't flower.

Nice

As far as I know there are no treatments for this. I fear it may not have much of a future, once you can see fungal growthlike that there is rot inside the trunk. It's not honey fungus so no drastic action required.

I hope someone else will bring you better news

Can't see it clearly Peter. Any tree with fungus growing on it is in trouble. What does the top of the tree look like? Is it leafing up?

Sheeps sorrel vs common sorrel

I'd get Rumex acetosa, you can eat that. Common sorrel?
