Hi everyone, 

I just joined yesterday and am new to gardening. I'm currently looking at digging out a load of plants in my front garden and another member (josusa47) recommended in my thread I get plants IDed. Hope it's ok doing a different thread for this :) 

Section that is staying includes this lot.

    Last one is London Pride and the 2 above heathers and the next 1  is possibly sedum.
    First photo is maybe aubretia next one stuck on its a bit oak leafy but perhaps not a tree seedling.

    No wrong the one above the last looks like  a heather not a sefum

    Thank you! Aubreita is the only one I know as my parents had/have it EVERYWHERE in my childhood home and I can't stand it haha! Not sure what it growing out of it but it wasn't there last summer if that's any help?

    Will look up the pride/sedums - thanks!

    Any trees near you that it might have come from?

    I've looked around and wonder if it came from either of these? They are the only two things I can find with redness in the leaves nearby although neither look quite right. But are both right next door!

    You are right they don't look a match. While you are digging out the aubretia you could always dig it out and pot it up and see what it does but if it's a self seed from somewhere 9 times out of 10 they aren't worth keeping  or you could try your hand at a bit of Bonsai.

    Second in is definitely an oak tree sapling. I would pull it out unless you want to grow an oak tree.

    I would get rid of all of those except the Aubrieta in the first photo and maybe the London Pride in the last one.   The 4th photo, the yellow, looks like Sedum 'Angelina' some people like it, but it's a rampant spreader.  I soon realised my mistake when I planted it... long gone...

    I've got Sedum 'Angelina in my garden and love it. True it can spread readily but is easy to pull out.
    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).

    Oh no! I'm shocked it's a tree... It's actually quite cute at the mo but I don't want a tree... While I won't be in this property when it's well grown, I'm thinking it's best I get it out now as it's not really picked the best location for its new home - it is right next to the pathway and gate and close to the street path too so I imagine the roots will one day start becoming a headache for whoever lives here then. Are they a pain in the bum to get out even if they're still a baby? (Given your username, I assume you know about these things!)

    On the plus side, to get it out, I'll have to dig up the aubreita too... BEST NEWS EVER B)
