Yes, its' a dock.

They are usually deep-rooted, so try to dig it all out.

I hope that you haven't got many.

I've dug them out, can't believe how long the root was, didn't get all the root from some so they will just keep getting pulled every time they surface.

If you have the patience, and it won't disturb other plants too much, it is better to dig again if they re-surface, going as deep as possible.

Just pulling the tops, means that the tap root can keep on putting out more shoots.

Anyone have any idea what this is?

It's growing in an old paddock area, which I was hoping to turn into a Meadow.

It grows in large patches and seems to smother anything else, even though it is low growing.

Creeping buttercup.

It's a pain!
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

Was just going to say something similar  >:(

Not got it on the plot, but it runs all through my rose bed - I have all the scratches and thorn holes to prove it after an assault on it this week  ::)

It's worthy of it's name.

It keeps creeping in from the paths.

Aah, Thanks DD, Mumofstig,

It truly is invasive. Meadow grass, which is tough in itself, just gets totally smothered and killed off by this stuff.

Well, there's too much to dig out, so it looks like I'll have to zap it to get it under control then hope the meadow grass grows back..

Ah, that's one of my unidentified weeds now identified. I will take a photo of the other one tomorrow as I forgot my phone today. It is a big flat leaf that unfurls (like a fern but horizontally). Each leaf gets to about hand size if I let them. Under the ground it has blanched white stems and a few I have pulled up seem to have grown from small bulbs....  :wacko:

I thought that having 2 half plots next to each other that have amalgamated to make 1 I would have found the same weeds but this half has it's own set of weeds  :mellow:

Ok, so this is the weed I was talking about above:



This is one I let grow at the back of my plot near my compost heap etc to see what it is. I have been pulling lots of it up! As I say, sometimes it looks like mini leeks when pulled up and sometimes there is a very small brown bulb on the end

Looks like Cuckoo-Pint or Lords and ladies (Arum maculatum) to me.

All parts are poisonous!

Oooer.... I will look it up.

You are right - that is definitely what it is. I will leave it at the back where I don't grow anything as it will  brighten up the area. I will definitely be removing it everywhere else (while wearing gloves!)

Cuckoo Pint looks rather nice at this time of year, and it develops into a gorgeous flower/seed!

We have loads round here, and they don't seem to hurt anyone, but that's probably because we leave them well alone..;0)
