    I've got something growing in the garden, which looks similar between the cow parsley and the trailing tormentil, the leaves have a reddish tinge to them. Any ideas? It's in a backfilled border, and the soil is taken from other parts of the garden, so likely to be weeds I think.

    Pamsdish - Always remember if a plant pulls out easily it is not a weed :D
    I found this site because my granddaughter mixed all my new plant markers up. Now that everything is growing at twenty to the dozen , all the weeds are coming up in my planting area but they all look the same at first :dunno: I'll have to let them grow a little for identification.

      Snow on the points was high up on the list but sadly lost out :loll: We'd always liked one name and by a stroke of genius Mrs Axl went into a false labour three days before the birth. Nothing then happened until December the 1st when Holly was born :)

        fantastic sticky!!

        i had a really panic, i recently took delivery of a load of soil (about 25 tonne) to level my garden an within a month the pile is full of weeds, one of them really worried me, it looked suspiciously like knot weed

        so after trawling through goggle images i couldn't find it an happened upon this thread which id the culprit as "Redshank"

        thank you very much for a very helpful thread!

        The old expired links in post #1 for these also need changing. They didn't lend themselves to RH clicking, so I've done it 'longhand' so can they please be substituted for those in the first post

        The 3rd piccie is Linaria purpurea which I have planted in my little front /cottage garden. Bees adore it and so do I,
