Plant ID please

If you dig it up does it come back?

Plant ID please

Either that pic or my eyes are a bit blurred

It looks like dandelion that's had the top chopped off several times and become multi-headed.

I assume a deep root that you can't dig up

How long does Roundup last in the soil?

Thanks Roundup people.

I think you should be allowed to have your say. 

I do use Roundup, it does the job and does it well. But with all the stories there's a feeling of 'should I be using this' every time I get the sprayer out.

It's hard to know what else I'd do with weeds emerging through an ancient cracking up  tarmac drive.

Morning chicky

Can you get one of those fruits and open it up and see the arrangement of seed or seeds inside? and the distal end of the fruit as well

Anyone know what this is please?

Not a plant I know intimately but

My first though was echiveria

Folk-lore. Any truth in it?

re the gregariousness of of rooks. 

There's a saying

'One rook is a crow. A group of crows are rooks.'

Is that folklore

Cyclamen Coum

Cyclamen coum are very variable in leaf and flower. I'd go to  a nursery and choose them in leaf. 

RHS Plantfinder (this seems to have got much more complex since I last used it) will find the plant you put in a search and a supplying nursery near you.

Nurseries are very different to garden Centres. Their business is knowing and growing plants rather than selling massed produced plants
