Forum home The potting shed

ID please?

Hi is anyone able to ID either of these plants and tell me if they are weeds lol? The tall ones I’ve left cause they actually fill a space but no idea if they are actually a weed 😆

    The first one looks sort of cabbagey
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    First one looks like rapeseed, possibly from birdseed.  Second one is Chenopodium album, a weed that seeds like crazy and is going berserk in my garden this year with all the rain.

    @fidgetbones thank you, that makes sense as I have a bird feeder on the fence just above this. Should I pull it out?
    The chenopodium should I pull it out do you think? I didn’t think it looked terrible but don’t want to look like a crazy person growing weeds in my flower beds 🤣😬

    just had a google and yeah think I will pull it up 🙈 thanks for the ID

    Yes, pull it out before it takes over the whole garden.

    @Obelixx will do. I still have so much to learn 🙃 although my grandpa was round just recently and he’s usually very good at knowing these things with his lifetime of experience and knowledge and he didn’t know it was a weed either so I don’t feel quite so silly lol.

    Get it out before it seeds.
