I think comment ^ must be about the fungus on previous page, rather than the tansy  ::)

I was rather confused by that mum, thanks for clearing it up.  I think Mike's warning is very wise indeed.  If in doubt......don't.

I have been digging my plot and under my parsnips and carrots (all six foot of them!), I have found this weed. It is low lying, and seems to have runners like strawberries. I dig it up and then it reappears (must have left a little bit of it in the soil). I would quite like to know what i am up against...

Ugh.

Creeping Buttercup.

Keep digging.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

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

Agree.  I've got it, and have a suspicion it likes acidic soil, so will be pH testing that part of my plot when it becomes empty.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

It`s actually quite easy to get rid of, the soil around the roots needs to be loosened so the growing point comes away with the leaves. Then turn the plant upside down to wither and die.
I`m left handed, what`s your excuse?

After being pressured by my parish council we have sprayed it with gyphosate. I have only had the site for six or seven weeks but they don't think I am clearing it fast enough. I just wanted to know what it is as I am sure that it will reappear at some point!

Thanks for your help.

I was a little confused as the photos show very established plants, now I remember your carrots and parsnips were from last year!

The buttercups will return as seedlings if they have set seed but they do not have deep roots so the spray should kill them.

Fab about the seedlings. I have already found some in my cleared areas but I am sure I will be able to keep on top it the weeds using a hoe now the worst offenders have been glycophated.  Can't wait to have a nice clear plot  :)

Noticed this on the way into the allotments and was wondering if it was a Comfrey plant?

Cheers

I thought so I have 2 little plants and the leaves are similar but hard to tell as they are much smaller.

Gonna get some root cuttings now then  :D

Just chop it up with a spade (downwards I mean  :lol: ) and it'll grow away really quickly  :D

First time I have seen this type of weed. Any ideas what it could be?
