    The borders of my driveway seem to have a number of these shooting up.

    Should they be dug out, look a bit unsightly.

    thanks

    Hi Rikii,
    No 1 looks like weed so I'd get rid of it.
    No 2/3 Could be Campanula Persicifloia ( Peach leaves Bellflowee ), I'd leave these for a little while to see what the flowers are. If they are Campanula they are beautiful and you can move them later.
    No 4 is Hypericum ( common names Rose of Sharon or St John's Wort ) a shrub with golden yellow flowers like a single Rose and definitely a keeper. This one you can move as well if you want to.

      No.1 is probably one of the willowweeds, epilobium something or other. Lose it, should be easy to pull up but self seeds profusely so be prepared to do this every year:)

        Hi guys,

        thanks for the advice.

        I was ready to go in and pull up the lot, so appreciate the pointers.

        think I will take my time to workout what ones are the willow weeds and at least get them out.
