Possible weeds ... And lilies!

Posted: 15/05/2016 at 18:18

there are numerous weeds in the compositae family with names like cat's ear and nipplewort. The thing with the lupins is one of them, it appears in the first 2 pics.


Am I seeing the whole pic in 2, there's nothing to the right of the chrysanthemums.


just had a burst in the IQ department. If they're upside down it's to the left, it's the same weed.


Same or similar in 3


not sure which one in 4


5 is japanese anemone


6 I don't think is lily or mare's tail


Some more photos posted individually would help with anything not positively IDd Birdy.

Could we have a little more info Mike?


Like which jasmine,


how old/big is it


where it's growing, pot or ground, indoors or out

A photo of the plant can be helpful as well

I think it's houttuynia. Have a you got a photo of it growing? It's hard to to ID when it's lying there on a slab.

It's hard to stop them once they start. Not likely to be too shallow planting but digging round and damaging the roots might stimulate that growth.

Peony flowering at last

cut off some of the older stems right to base. If you shorten them you end up with an ugly shaped lump. But it's a big bush and looks much better like that.

If you let it seed last year you'll probably have some in the garden. It's a good self seeder

Clearing Nettles in Bluebells

Agree with Tetley and Buttercup, forget the death sprays. Nettles don't survive in mown grass. (Or mown anything else)

I recommend leaving some for the Orange Tip butterfly, this is their big larval food plant

Brown tailed moth caterpillars

another day, another scare story. 


all these plants and animals have been around as long or longer than we have and we've survived so far,


We use to play with all those hairy caterpillars as kids, people weren't so frightened of the natural world then. Perhaps journalists hadn't fully developed the art of a good horror story.
