Weed or Feed?

Postby buckshot » Aug 07, 2009 12:59 pm

Have no idea if this is a weed or a plant that I have planted! It has been an extreemly bad year (too much rain) and the garden failed badly. I have forgotten what I had planted and where, so when this arrived I wasn't sure if I should purge or pamper it (I'm banking on a weed).

If anyone could identify it, that would be great

Have a good one
All the best

Totally agree, a weed, - although I didn't know the name! :lol:

At least with a lot of rain, it will be easy to pull! Here, in Droughtland, it takes a shovel to help get all the roots of knotweed - tough little buggers. Oh, I wish I had the energy to keep up with all the knotweed. LOL

Happy pulling!
