    Hi Gardeners,

    Yet more wild flower/weed conundrums to solve!

    Any help is much appreciated - thank you for all your previous help with my weed identification.

    :thanks:

    Now I'm pretty sure this is a weed clover - I'm not sure what species, would be good to know.

          Thank you everyone -

          The wild mustard charlock seems to be a from my meadow mix.

          Not sure about the parsley piert and red spotted clover. Parsley piert and red spotted clover seem to be considered lawn weeds, but as I want a wildflower patch, the clover can stay, still unsure about the parsley piert.

          I'm not sure the plant 2 is rosebay willowherb. It has slightly hairy/silvery leaves. They are quite textured, not smooth. I've seen this in the garden elsewhere, so I don't think it's part of the meadow mix, but not sure what it is.

          Thanks for all your help :-)

          The one with the heart shaped leaves is wood sorrel.

          It looks like a wild type of Geranium but the leaves are wrong for Herb Robert.

              No, red stems, distinct smell...I smell nuffink!

              I'm quite sure(I think!) of my identification, I pull up bucket loads of the stuff after disturbing the ground. Moral of the story, don't disturb the ground or use a mulch

                I think photo one has a young cut leaved cranesbill, some clover, grass and possibly an oxalis with an immature willowherb and possibly a selfheal plant under the clover.

                  Not the Rose Bay I know well - from pulling it up all year in my garden :doh:. Rose Bay has smooth leaves and usually much narrower.

                    1. To me with that almost round leaf is one of the weedy Geraniums.
                    such as Geranium molle common name Dove's-foot Crane's-bill or Dovesfoot Geranium,

                    Geranium molle leaf - Google Search
