Help to needed to ID Weed growing through old hedge

Posted: 31/07/2017 at 09:14

I've seen these about all over the place. My neighbour has some. What I have never seen, ever, is a berry. I wondered if they needed male and female plants together but no hint of that anywhere I've looked

Dove, what we called Restharrow was a little pea shrublet.

We have had threads on here from people asking how to get rid of this and stop it suckering

We need a photo, ash doesn't sucker or have cones.

If it was outside before it won't need a greenhouse in the winter.

Don't plant it in the garden without an ID, anything suckering can be a real pain. I wonder if it's Rhus typhina and the cones are the remains of flowers

just stop cutting and if you do the weed and feed thing,don't

Gardening for wildlife is  much about what you don', Don't mow, let flowers come, don't clear everything up, leave somewhere for insects to live. 

Above all, get rid of the chemicals. 

Plant identification please

don't be deceived by the purple in 3.  It's not an ajuga, Burgundy Glow or otherwise.

I think they may all be speedwells.

Do you know what this is?

the first has the look of some sort of geranium. Neither look like any sort of tree.

I wouldn't put it in a pot, I've seen the roots of the big ones. 

Looking at yours, I'd say it needs more air circulation. I wouldn't spray, spraying the garden with chemicals is best avoided and anti-fungals don't alter the appearance of the existing leaves. They're deciduous and next year's leaves will be OK. 

Tree/shrub id please

my first thought was one of the acacias but totally unable to justify that thought.
