It could be bindweed. Does it have white curly roots.

Any chance of a close up of the leaves?

You should have posted it under the "Which weed is this" topic. Perhaps one of the kindly moderators will move it?

Salmo - took a close up of the leaves today - plus a picture of what was also under the black plastic.........any advice gratefully received  :)

Still not sure. The plant in the middle almost looks like coltsfoot, but there again the leaves are not quite right. Does it flower?

It looks a bit like Fat Hen.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

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

Smellykipper - the first two look like Willow Herb, not a great problem, however the others appear be ground elder. The latter you'll find to be a mass of roots underneath and right pain to fork out.

I'm not sure what your stance is on such matters, but I'd be reaching for the gylphosate.

I don't know if it flowers as I've literally started working on the allotment in the last few weeks - sorry!

I suppose the best thing would be to dig as much as possible out and then keep an eye on it the hoe?  :)

It looks a bit like Fat Hen.

Fat hen does not have creeping roots. It could be a garden plant that has gone wild.

Roundup it before you do any cultivation.

Is this comfrey that I have heard so much about? We have lots of it growing round our water tray/tap and. I have noticed some people seem to have patches of it on their plot.

If it is comfrey how would I get some onto my own plot - does it seed?

Yes that is comfrey,just dig up some roots if nobody minds & replant where you want it.

Comfrey seeds like mad and can be a real pest. That is why people plant a sterile strain, the name of which escapes me.
