    Could it be a fig-leaved hollyhock?

  • Buttercup you have just solved a problem for me without even knowing, I have a plant in the garden which I was sure was a hollyhock but I thought the leaves where the wrong shape, didn't know there was such a thing as a fig leaved one,


    Sorry for interrupting your thread Lynn Plant-Wells.

  • No problem Chrissy!  I was about to pull it out so do hope it's a hollyhock. I have 'regular' ones in my front garden - they have the fungal infection. I was on hols when they started getting it so didn't manage to treat them. image.

    I would say thats a weed Lyn. if it were a Hollyhock it would have buds on it by now, keep an eye on it and don't let it self seed. 

    Could be wrong, but I don't think so. Weeds grow up very much quicker than plants. 

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor. 

  • My suspicions. It did grow fairly quickly - although I was away for a month - and no flowers/buds in sight. Wonder what kind of weed it is? Big leaves! image
