Weed Identification

If this is a newly seeded lawn, you will get rid of them when you mow it.

Orange Hawkweed (Hieracium auantiacum)

Wildflower.  Scarce but locally common.

What is it?

Within minutes. Dove!!  But I don't think there will be much effect from one, two or three spears.  We pigged out on Pembrokeshire asparagus at the weekend.  Delicious!

What is it?

Yes it is asparagus.  Eat and enjoy.

Wonderful result.

What is this

Cow parsley? If the leaves are matt.

Hemlock if the leaves are shiny?

Nothing is normal for mid-May, this year.

Garlic - when does it look ready?

Scapes are not inevitable.  Certainly they will not be ready until the leaves start to die down.

Bind weed

You say it is a new home for you.  Have you been there long enough for glyphosate to work?  The weather has only warmed up recently.  It is no use applying it unless the weed is actively growing.  It then takes some time to work.  Not days.

Do not use the stuff you get in garden shops or centres.  You need agricultural Roundup.  Expensive, but if you have a bad infestation it will be an investment.  Ensure you dilute it according to instructiions, and give it time to work.

I am not sure you will ever win by digging it out.  Unless you are a very young man or woman!
