Help me identify this please

Posted: 20/06/2015 at 09:45

I've got cherry suckers all over my lawn CR. and alder suckers on another patch of grass. After time they form a knot of growth that stands proud of the lawn, that's when it becomes a nuisance.  

But I'd rather have those than JKW or mare's tail

Help me identify this please

What to do about it. Hmm.

 Can you identify the tree? If it's gone, (which is often the case, chopping trees down stimulates them to drastic action), you're safe to spot treat the suckers with a weedkiller. Treating the suckers will affect the tree if it's still there

It's a tree sucker, a poplar by the look of it.  

Mystery plants / weeds that I can't kill with weedkiller

A flame gun works well on annual weeds because it burns off the top and there's nothing much to regrow. Just a minor setback for the above collection.

Double strength. That could be part of the problem. These things are best used as prescribed. A quick death of top growth is not what you want, you want slow and total death of the root as well. But there is no instant fix for weeds of this quality. 'dt cut all the tops of, wait for good strong regrowth, not a few little scraps, and respray according to instructions

asparagus or weed?

Pot on and feed and see how it goes

I'm not a grower of things in pots. I'd never keep up with the feeding and watering required. 8 tomatoes in the GH are as far as I go
