This tallish weed ( approx 1.5 feet tall ) seems to like my garden. I've pulled a few recently but cannot identify it. Sorry for the partly out-of-focus image. If someone can put a name to it I would be much obliged.
I think it is wall lettuce, Mycelis muralis
[Thanks to Michael Peverett for that page.]
In some works that is still referred to as Lactuca muralis (so you may find other references by searching for that).
If it is not that, consider the other species of Lactuca.
Have a look at this extract from the BSBI's Plant Crib and see if that helps you.
Please let us know.
Many thanks Mike, it is wall lettuce. Thanks also for the references which make very interesting reading.
Please mark your question as answered correctly in that case;thanks.
