Anyone know what these little plants shooting up are?
I'm thinking Linaria purpurea, but there's something else very similar, I cant think of the name at the moment.
The alternative is cypress spurge, (Euphorbia cyparissias)which spreads by underground rhizomes. Do they exude a white sap when broken?

See original post
Hmm that does seem likely the way they'e spread out, I'll have a check for sap tomorrow!
Be careful. If it is euphorbia the sap can cause irritation to exposed skin and you need to be very careful not to get it in your eyes.
I say this every time I see euphorbia mentioned on the forum.......Be properly protected! Wash thoroughly when you finished
it took my eye 6 months to heal!!
I was thinking of your poor eyes just yesterday LilyP ... how are they now?
thanks for asking Dove
its one of these funny things that you suddenly realise one day you haven’t notoced it for a while
I am thrilled it seems to have gone It really was a horrid thing ?
I'm glad to hear that LilyP ... it must have been horrid and quite scary. I think we sometimes dont realise how ill we've been until we recover and realise that all the effects of the illness have gone.
Thanks for the advice guys, will make sure I am well protected when dealing with these
