Hi all! Hope your all well and enjoying the weather, OK can anyone tell me what this is, I've gotten quite attached to it but it does look very weed like, if it is a weed I better kill it before it seeds.  8)

It's Borage - it's a pretty wildflower.

I have it on my plot and just hoe most of the seedlings off in spring  :)

I have quite a lot if this and it's a * to pull out. Don't know what it is though.

Looks like a currant bush to me.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Looks like some sort of persicaria to me.   If you google persicaria weed for images, it brings up a lot of pics for you to compare to :)

Not sure it's a persicaria. The pics of those all look more upright than what I have has numerous 'stems' that grow out along the ground from the centre.

You're looking at the second photo.

The first one, here, even has currants in sight.

That's not KnotWEED, it's KnotGRASS - the former is a very nasty plant  :ohmy:  :)

It looks like knotgrass to me. If left it can grow 8 ft across. Local name of ironweed. Very tough stems and hard to hoe out. It is better controlled on farms these days but it used to be a weed that would wrap round root harvesters and cause them to bung up.

An alternative name is Prostrate Knotweed. It fortunately not Japanese Knotweed, which no doubt rang your alarm bells, Yorkie!
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

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