Can you tell the difference between a flower and a weed?

Admittedly, what are classed as weeds can often bear beautiful flowers, while some more mundane plants can spread through a garden and crowd out their more attractive neighbours.

So are you as lacking in garden gumption as the majority of the 2,000 people surveyed by B&Q? The DIY company has developed an app which Market Director Outdoor Mike Norton calls “Shazam for plants”, which will let you know what you’re looking at straight away, using image recognition software.
