Hi all,

Here I am again, asking for some help identifying another random pop up in my garden!

If anyone can help identifying the attached picture I would be very grateful.

Thanks all,
Aidan. :)

    Hi Aidan
    It may be Alchemilla Mollis Lady's Mantle
    Hows the midges? :)
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Hi Pete,

    Thanks so much, it definitely looks like that… I do have that in the front border but where it’s come up is really far away, how very very odd!

    As for the midgies 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️ Does that answer your question! 😂

    It seeds everywhere @aidanhoad, and can be quite invasive, so if you don't want more, you need to deadhead religiously  :)
    I'm very fortunate - midges don't really bother me. They have to be really intense before they get me scratching. 

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I was just reading up on it and saw it said about it being invasive, I can’t say I’m terribly keen on it myself either 🤦‍♂️😂 my partner loves it… I shall have to secretly dead head it 😂

    I’m just so surprised that it’s managed to get from the front of my house all the way round the back - nature amazes me!! ❤️

    As for the midgies, I wish I could say the same… they seem to be drawn to me!

    Seed on the soles of your shoes when you're mowing the lawn front and back????

    It's surprising how far they travel on the wind. In a previous house, I picked one out of a tiny bit of soil on the pavement along the road from me, even though there was none to be seen in any of the gardens anywhere nearby. 
    You're in a very exposed location from what I remember @aidanhoad  :)

    Both possibilities, just amazes me, I don’t like the plant but I’m going to leave it be as I’m impressed it’s made it there!! 😂
