What is this plant please?

I think tree suckers, cherry maybe?

Saplings in the lawn

suckers, far worse than saplings.

The more roots you can pull out the better. Looks like Rhus typhina? a real pain for this, never had to deal with it, only cherries which do the same. Without the tree the cherries give up eventually if mowed off regularly. They can't live forever if all the leaves are removed

What is it, how do I get rid of it - black pods on lawn

I didn't think so Dove. There are so many plants in that family. I would need to see at least leaves or flowers, preferably both.

I like things like that in my grass but I should think a rake and a mow would help, before the seeds ripen so possibly too late for this year

Invasive vine-like plant

looks a bit like periwinkle, Vinca. Have you got photos of it growing?

Vinca is not easily removed but it's easy to pull some up with a bit of root and think it's removed

Have you got any photos of the leaves?

What colour were the flowers?

Where can I buy Erysimum 'Bowles's Mauve' wallflower seeds?

Posted: 22/07/2017 at 15:35

yes, could be great, just not Bowles' Mauve. Won't do for those that want a patch of all the same plant.

Portugese Laurel

Posted: 22/07/2017 at 15:31

mine get nothing except rain when it rains. Very alkaline soil. The Portugal laurel is much better than Prunus laurocerasus in this respect

If you don't cut off the dead top you risk it rotting and the rot spreading to the rest of the plant and preventing the new growth filling in the gap.

Plant ID, please

Very different flowers, but white for both.
