It's a solanum, a poisonous weed. Related to potatoes and tomatoes amongst others.

Re: Can anyone identify this plant please?

from pauline

You may be happy to have the horseradish in your garden now, but you'll probably never be able to get rid of it as it spreads and sends down deep roots everywhere. I had to resort to several applications of glyphosate in the end to rid my garden of it! You can have too much of a good thing.

Re: Endangered sweetpea?

from pauline

This is lathyrus latifolius, also knwn as the everlasting pea, because, unlike the Sweet Peas you grow from seed each summer, they spring up again each year after dying back in winter. My garden is infested with them. They pop up amongst my herbaceous perennials and smother them if they get a chance.
They are certainly not endangered. I wish they were, at least in my garden!

Re: plant help

from pauline

The first is a white climbing rose. There are too many varieties for it to be possible to give a definite name. The second is an olive plant.

Re: can someone identify this for me

from pauline

It's Hypericum. The berries at this stage can be quite pretty in flower arrangements, but they eventually ripen to black and the birds will spread the seeds. Can become quite a nuisance when they establish themselves in walls or rocky banks.

Re: What plant is this and how can I get rid of it

from pauline

It's quite often seen as clumps in municipal flower beds in France. It gives a bit of height and fills gaps between groups of other plants and, as it is so cheap to propagate, it doesn't drain the finances too much. Then, at the end of the summer it can be dug up and composted to enrich the flower beds next year. VoilĂ ! Saving money and saving the planet all at once! Every plant has its uses.

Re: Grass? Rush?

from pauline

I think it's Equisetum Japonicum, a member of the horsetail family.
