This is growing in one of my tubs. It has long stems and small pink flowers. We have nick-named it Laura Ashley. I don't think I planted it! But it could have come either wither a replacement set of Geums or from some horse dung??? Help please!!! I am a very amateur starter!!

Think it might be Fumaria, part of the poppy family

I agree, Common Fumitory. It has found its own way into your garden!

Hi Catriona, here is Fumaria in Shoot.

Hope that helps?

It is a sweet looking thing. But it can be a bit of a thug. So if it comes up where you don't want it - pull it out when small. Overwhelmed my broad beans one year because I am too soft-hearted.
