Hello all, first time posting here.

1. Recently I stumbled across a small woodland of a type I'd never seen before... the canopy was almost 100% Quercus petraea with a very few colonising beeches and mountain ashes. The ground was a uniform carpet of moss and this grass/sedge which is something I'm really not very good with. It was such a strange place because there was no evidence that it had been planted or managed and yet it was so lacking in biodiversity. There were literally no other plant species present at all. The location is Yorkshire, England on steep ground with poor soil (acidic?). Any help with this plant... is it some kind of fescue? Seems to be very early, too. Sorry about the rubbish camera.








2. Also, this looks a bit like basil but doesn't smell or taste of anything. Again, Yorkshire, England, widespread but generally in the shade. Any ideas?
