Dear Forum Members,

This is springing up in more than one location and looks messy with its clusters of yellow flowers. Not a huge fan. what is it and how/when can I pulverise it? (or give it a Chelsea chop?)

Many thanks

    Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla mollis).  It can be a bit invasive but is useful in very shady areas.  If you decide to keep it, cut the flowers off after they fade or it will seed everywhere.  image

    Alchmilla mollis or Lady's mantle. Dig it up, pull it up do your worst. It will still manage to self seed everywhere.

    Go and have a look at the leaves of your Alchemilla Mollis after a rain shower - you'll have a hard heart indeed if you don't warm to it then image

    I think it looks lovely with raindrops on but it is a devil to contol even if you attempt to remove flowers. Taken me ages to get rid of it, or I thought I had image but not so it's back.

    I love mine, Doves right when its rained or theres been a heavy dew, the leaves look so pretty. The flowers are great for filling out a vase of flowers too. Florists use it in bouquets sometimes. It does spread but its managable. I just dig a bit up and move it somewhere that needs filling.
