More things keep popping up - latest couple as follows:


Is this a rogue euphorbia?


These are all over the place.

Any ideas please?

Apologies if if these come out sideways.

    The top one I whip out because I think it's a weed but only because it's everywhere. The bottom one I like the look of. I'd keep that and see what happens. image

    top is a weed & bottom is a 'weed' but it has a really nice flower on it, i have them popping up all over in my garden, i think the flowers are pinky/lilac if i remember rightly

    Ha! Good guess PP image

    I know that if I have loads of it and it's thriving that's seldom a good sign. The pale sickly creatures??? Now that I paid good money for.

    The first is Petty spurge (aka milkweed), Euphorbia peplus.  Don't let it seed.  The second is Purple toadflax, also a weed but some folk like it.  If you don't want it everywhere, pull it up.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
