It looks like bindweed to me. I have found that the roots rarely go more than a spade and a half deep, and most are nearer the surface than that, you just need to make sure you that you get all of the root.  :)

Ok, definitely sounds to be what I am finding. I shall look forward to digging that up for years to come then.....

Ok, me again. I am starting to find these seedlings all over some of my beds - any idea what they are? I haven't got round to weeding these beds today as I have been concentrating on the nettles and bindweed at the back...

I don't suppose anyone knows this one?



Amazingly it came out of a packet of tomato seeds :blink: it sprouted the same time as my tomato seedlings, in the same row and spacing for a seed, in compost that hadn't been handled outside. So it must have gotten in the packet somehow... initially mistook it for a very weak seedling, but then allowed it to grow out of curiosity.

Now the seedlings have been long transplanted I stuck it in a trough outside until I can identify it. Any thoughts?

Chickweed. A very common garden weed. The seeds are tiny and could well have come in stuck to a trowell or dibber

I think it is fat hen, or closely related orache. Do the backs of those first true leaves have a silvery look. Now is the time to run a hoe through and kill them. Leave them to get bigger and they will be hard work.

Doesn't matter what it is - just hoe it off quick, before it gets bigger  :lol:

Thanks! I cannot imagine how it got in. I used a dibber but it was a new one straight out of a sealed packet.

Ok, I will hoe them off tomorrow - I just didnt want to do that and find out that by hoeing them off I helped to spread it about! I don't know if they are silvery on the back - I will have a look more closely tomorrow.

Evening guys. What what is this and what is the best way of dealing with it?

When weeding, the best way to know if its a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull it.

If it comes out easy, it was a valuable plant !

If it hasn't been planted then I would suggest a mullein, which is of the same family but can grow like a weed.

Definately not a spud. Has a 2-foot tap root about the thickness of a pack of polo's.

There are quite a few of them around my plot unfortunately.
