    Good Morning all

    I’m very new to gardening and this year I have managed to grow beautiful tomato plants from seed but I have had a few odd plants popping up in between and no one seems to know what they are, can anyone identify this plant?

    Thanks
    Vicky

      Hello @Vicky Rutherford there's no such beast as a weed,its just a plant considered undesirable in a particular situation, "a plant in the wrong place". :heehee:
