Some kind of powder comes off when disturbed, any ideas?

    It's the fruiting body of Horsetail.image  Pull it up, bag it and bin it.

    Horsetail, I'm sorry to say.  Pull them up and throw them in the black bin.

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

    Put a bag over it before you pull it. That powder is the spores (seeds) to create new plants. You don't want that
