    Your stock aren't getting mixed up as part of the weeds are they? I can see you have planted them...

  • I've basically stuffed my borders full of annuals, and since the label incident, I'm losing track! My stocks are nearby but I have some in a pot too so I'm ok with not pulling those by mistake... I think!
  • Could 3 by ladybird poppy?

    Yes that is what 3 is. I was sure it was a poppy, but could not remember which one.

    There are ashtrays of emulsion,

  • Ok, shepherds purse and buttercup

    Gone! There was me thinking my seeds had all come up brilliant, and half of them are flipping weeds! I'm pretty sure there are quite a few more in there so please point it out if you see one.... Or twenty!!

    These are appearing everywhere... Pull?


    What is this surrounded by the euphorbia?

  • 2nd pic looks like you might have some rocket (the long pointy leaf behind the tiny pink flowers in the centre of the pic). 

    I can see a pink plant label there, what does that say?  Can you remember any of what you planted?

    You could leave them all to flower, as they all seem like beneficial plants for bees and butterflies.  Or transfer the lot to a planter and leave it in a sunny spot for the insects, then when you've worked out what's what, you can either re-plant, get rid, or leave them in the pot for the insects.

    A good idea when planting up a plot is to make a rough sketch in a notebook of the area, and make a list of what you planted, where and when.  Do this as well as putting in the plant labels.


  • That's the stocks I think? With the pink label.

    The second and possibly the fourth photos show Epilobium (Willowherb). There's also a lot of Willowherb in the 5th photo. That needs to come out.
