These have popped up in my flower beds and borders, are they weeds or plants.
Has a similarity to Good King Henry. Not 100% though.
I agree with Dave that the first one looks like a Chenopodium (Goosefoot) of some kind. If it is, it will produce thousands of very long lived seeds so I'd get rid.
The second one I don't recognise but it looks 'weedy' is clearly a slug magnet and judging by the 'flowers', it also looks like it will seed like mad so I would get rid of it, personally.
Thanks guys, i'll bin em.
Looks more amaranthus trhan chenopodium to me
I think the 1st one could be chickweed
I think they're all the same thing at different staes of growth
and all the same do you think Jo?
Is that species a common weed one. I was looking at a different species but I'm not on close terms with these
I don't have any of them in my weed collection
The could both be the same plant nut. Both chenopodium and amaranthus are closely related, are fast evolvers and freely cross with others in their own group, making them difficult to identify. Amaranthus are commonly known as pigweeds. Some piccies & info. here:
I think it is most likely A.retroflexus as Jo said. As a group, they have been largely ignored by british botanists, apparently. Scholarly article: http://www.hantsplants.org.uk/docs/A%20GUIDE%20TO%20AMARANTHACEAE.pdf
What I do know is that they are a pain in the b*m on my veg plot!
