Wildlife garden weeds.

Posted: 12/04/2014 at 17:16

1. is hogweed, (not giant hogweed, just the home grown one)

2 is cow parsley

They dig up relatively easily in soil, hard work to deal with when they've invaded the hay meadow.. Get the flower heads of that cow parsley before it seeds

The hogweed is ripe for glyphosate if you want to use chemicals

Baby newts look like fish with external gills stuck out at the side of their heads.  The first time I saw them I wondered where all the baby fish came from as we haven't got any adult fish.

Thanks jatnik. I have plenty to experiment with. For years the clump didn't enlarge at all, it was growing through Ivy and all sorts of weeds. One winter I took a mower and cleared the top growth. Then it got away

Strawberry bed fouled?

Green pondwater will be good for the soil. It may have made the strawberries unpleasant if it was poured onto them but the long term effects are OK
