According to my book it is properly called horsetail.  Marestail is the aquatic version which lives in ponds.  Doesn't make it any easier to get rid of though  >:(

Yes, not even a related species but quite similar in appearance. Both names are used for the garden species. We know what you mean, not a good weed to have.

Unfortunately I have both in my garden.  :( Horsetail in my flower beds, and marestail in the dyke next to my veg plot which found its way into one of my raised beds.  :( :( I dug down and hoicked it out and the roots were like a soft tube - ugh - but haven't seen it there since so was quite easy to eradicate. "Never let it see a Sunday" is the motto.
I don't like bananas unless it's raining. (A quote from my great-niece).

I spent the weekend trying to get as much of it as possible out of my strawberry bed. Annoying stuff -  but it's very satisfying to get some out with a good bit of root on it. Or to find the orangey young roots and get those out too.

I think it could be a Shasta Daisy or similar?

I've been finding these all over any ground that I've worked on, it seems to prefer lighter soil compared to the compacted paths between my beds. I know it looks kind of like a carrot, which made weeding them out of the carrot bed a fiddle. Plot owners who have been here for years say this is the first season they've seen them on the site.
