well tell us what the thing is that's dripping, and show a photo.

I'm guessing WC cistern, bathroom extractor, condensing boiler, leaking gutter.

All the weeds near it are doing well, i suggest a high nitrogen supply icon_biggrin.gif I thought it maybe the water from the bath missing the hopper but wouldn't expect the weeds to like that.

That stain is some concern, if it is condensate, then i suggest the weeds are ericatious lovers icon_lol.gif
