Hi, these have sprung up in our flowerbed. Does anyone happen to know what they could be?
and secondly,this one...
(not a stinging nettle - have tested this )
The first and second ones look like dahlias. Can't help with the third one though.
The third one is a deadnettle, I think. Does it stink to high heaven when you pull a bit off?
BobTheGardner I certainly did not expect that as was thinking it might be some sort of weed! We went to the garden centre the other day to buy a Dahlia (Bishop of Llandaff) and we had one all along. Looking forward to it flowering now.
Waterbutts it did have a bit of a strange aroma that's for sure.
Thanks very much you two.
another possibilty for the thirdis woundwort, Stachys sylvatica. Same family, worse smell
Thanks for your help nutcutlet. I have pulled the pesky thing out now.
