I'm not sure - looking at the pink-ish bits, I wonder if it is an aggressive ornamental grass - like Gardener's Gaiters (which it isn't). Are the little flower heads in the pic part of it?
I don't like bananas unless it's raining. (A quote from my great-niece).

If it's got running roots then it's couch grass  :( You have my sympathy ::)

Yeah, it's couch grass. I thought the bloke who runs the allotments told me couch grass was something else, I guess I was mistaken!

Cheers also goosegirl for your comment - the flowers were part of a different plant.

Just a couple more weeds I was hoping for ID on. The first one with all the little flowers on I have to pull up a lot from my carrot plot, the second I find on the onions.

The first one, not sure, but the second one is speedwell, a garden escapee, hard to eradicate, best to hand weed and get all the root

Can you do a pic taken further back so we can see the leaves properly?

This thing probably accounts for 90% of the weeds on my plot.  It's a flat variety and the root is long and thin. Does anyone know what it's called please?  Apologies for the lack of picture focus.  Thanks.

After googling ragwort I'm not convinced neither.  Ragwort seems more leafy than this stuff.  Plus ive never seen ragwort in flower anywhere on the plot. I'll let a bit flower and take a better picture.  Cheers.

Might be tansy  :unsure:  It is sometimes planted as a companion plant and would self seed everywhere.  Could the previous plot holder have sown this or one of your plot neighbours?

Is tansy ragwort........? Anyway.  After looking at the first ever picture of my plot from 3 years ago there does indeed seem to be a tansy outbreak  :).  The yellow flowers in the background look tansy like to me.  Cheers.

Tansy and ragwort are different plants.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Thanks.

Wiki - "large plant may produce 150,000 seeds".  Yes and I've pulled about that many to date!!

Can anyone help me identify this weed please?
It has taken over the carrot patch and its taken me most of the afternoon to dig it all out!

Would also appreciate any help in getting rid of it!

Thanks

Annual sow thistle. Keep pulling it out. Never let it seed.
