can anyone identify this for me please, is it wild mustard or something else growing amoungs my geraniums?
Looks like a young foxglove.
Thanks, but I've got lots of foxgloves popped up so I'm sure it's not, trouble is I've trawled through so many weed pictures and so many seem similar, it's difficult to tell one from another.
Does it stink if you rub it? If yes, it's ____wort. Can't remember the important bit
B3 I wouldn't say it stinks, but to me it smells a bit like lettuce.
No the one I'm thinking of has an unpleasant meaty smell.
No, definitely not that then. I think I'll dig them all up & stick them in a pot to see how they develop & then I may be able to identify them better. Thanks anyway.
The weed top right is ivy leaved speedwell, there are a couple of aquilegia seedlings and I still have my money on foxglove seedlings - they are biennial and look a bit different in their 2nd year.
Yeah I know the others, I love aquilegias, they seed everywhere in my garden the same as foxgloves, although I've never planted either ? But just as comparison a foxglove seedling closeby is pictured below and they have more slender furry leaves.
and this is about the same size as the first weed pictured, although the it may not look it.
Ah, size comparison is always tricky with photos! There are quite a few things which look similar at that size as you've found when searching! We'll look forward to seeing how the ones you've potted develop - might be something nice like a cultivated form of verbascum.
Thanks BobTheGardener, I'll post pics once they've developed a bit and apologise graciously if you're proved right
