I think it's creeping buttercup. Dig a bit up and see if it has long white roots like a leek.
I don't like bananas unless it's raining. (A quote from my great-niece).

Agree with creeping buttercup. Usually found in damp areas. It can soon choke everything else out.

Roundup, or any glyphosate weed killer, will kill it. Choose a dry day.

The alternative is to carefully dig each root out.

Anyone know what type of weed this is
The first one looks like buttercup, the second one looks like a spring onion surrounded by something I've got loads of too, so I'd be interested if you find out  :unsure:

The second one could be a sedge of some sort. The seed can arrive peat based compost if the 'peat' is taken from the upper layers and not the truly 'composted' lower layers. Seems to appear when the compost/soil is very wet.

Hi Annen,   The second one that looks like a leek is Cotton Grass, found in very boggy areas, and yes, could have come in a bag of peat based compost, if you have it just dig it up and burn.

Any idea what this is, this is the centre of a much bigger plant, a foot or more across, the leaves are fuzzy.

I think it is that as well.  It is quite attractive with a tall spike of yellow flowers, but it seeds around quite freely.  Whip the fading flower head off quickly if you decide to keep it :)

Thank you, I might just leave it, the pictures I've seen of it in bloom are impressive.

I think it is a soft rush.

Almost certainly mullien. As it grows you may find the leaves are eaten. That will be caterpillars of the mullien moth. The flower spike can reach 6 ft.

I first saw this on my plot last year and I weeded it as normal, it was only in a few places. This year some areas are covered in it. I was weeding today and it was easier to get out which probably means I'm spreading 1000's of seads with every handful I get out. It is more like some kind of moss. Anyone know what it is?

I don't know but it's blummin' invasive, I'm afraid to say!
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...
