Weed identification

Use this forum for identification of plants and flowers found in the UK. To allow us to help provide accurate identification we need clear pictures of the whole plant, where it is growing and close up pictures of flowers, buds or seed heads if any available. It would also be useful to see pictures showing the leaf attached to the stem.

Weed identification

Post by Tallulah_Tort » 09 Jan 2019, 14:51

I have found these weeds in my garden. I know I’ve seen them before but I can’t quite place their name. I think the first plant is some sort of cress type plant but may be completely wrong.
Thanks, Lisa
