Plant identity
« on: October 01, 2017, 10:51:46 AM »

Hi Ya, More plants for you knowledgeable people to try and identify for me. The daisy like plant has been a real pain this year and is so prolific it grows like wildfire. It forms a large plant from one stem that when pulled lifts the whole lot. Never seen or had it on the plot before and I am not the only one, some one suggested it might be flax. The other looks like some sort of succulent and know idea there. Quite large as you see by the bag and though quite pretty it has small shots like the ones we pick out of tomatoes to get more fruit. Happy Hunting. I don't even know where to start. Good luck

The second plant looks like one of the Euphorbias, I'm so old  that I have had to start deleting some of the information stored in my brain to make way for the new stuff ss:-(, if you break the stem it should have a milky sap, don't get it on your skin. Can't quite make out the plant in the first picture, sorry.

I asked around about your first plant, not a positive identification but compare it to this...

Hi Ya. Thanks Aftermidnight. I think you are right about both from what I can see. I think the soldier weed is just as described and very prolific. It has seed I think I saw as little grey coloured items. It says it's a problem in America so how did it get here I wonder as several on site say it's a pain. As an annual I wonder if it has been included by some company in a packet of annual wild flower seeds. I have also warned the person about the second plant and told them to destroy it. It's on ground where they keep horses and as I was collecting sime gold (horse poo) they asked about it. Thankyou very much.

well done  Annette on identifying the weeds

shaggy solider weeds appeared on my allotment last year and  its been war all this year
shaggy  is winning for now  HB:-(   

I have hoed the weed, pulled it out, dug it in , jumped up and down on it but still it comes back for more

think it may have come from a plot near by where they feed the birds

when the seedlings come up next spring out will come the sprayer to nuke them  cwl:-]

I remember spilling some Trill wild bird seed on some open ground by a bird feeder about forty years ago. Next year I had a a few lovely specimens of marijuana on display in public! Apparently they stopped putting hemp seeds in their mix since those days - someone twigged that a lot of sales were going to some hippy types!

About time they legalised that stuff. One of the finest pain reliefs on the planet.
