    The himalyan is a notifiable invasive species so I would get shot, there is an app "Thats Invasive" where you can report it if seen along with other notifiable invasives.

    To clarify:

    Himalayan Balsam is not 'notifiable' and is classified as a 'naturalised non-native plant' but invasive.

    The legal position is found here

    In summary it says:

    Prevent the spread of invasive, non-native plants

    You must not plant in the wild or cause certain invasive and non-native plants to grow in the wild. This can include moving contaminated soil or plant cuttings. If you do, you can be fined or sent to prison for up to 2 years.

    The most commonly found invasive, non-native plants include:

    • Japanese knotweed
    • giant hogweed
    • Himalayan balsam
    • Rhododendron ponticum
    • New Zealand pigmyweed (this is banned from sale)

    You’re not legally obliged to remove these plants or to control them. However, if you allow Japanese knotweed to grow onto other people’s property you could be prosecuted for causing a private nuisance."

    Hope that helps image

    vjwuk and Dovefromabove, thanks for the info, I not longer live in the UK, I live in Southern Ireland now, I will have to see if i can find a site that I can report it to over here. 

    I have already pulled out the Himalayan balsam. I'm so glad i asked for the id,

    otherwise this could be all over my garden next year.

    Thanks for your help everyone.xx

  • just looking at the heuchera and the first one is purple palace.  Not definite about the other one but could be something like berry smoothie.
