Phew!  :D

By just posting that it was 'Knotweed', I wanted to avoid members replying re. Japanese variety!
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

I am hoping this is not Japanese Knotweed.  When it first started appearing the leaves looked like nasturtiums. It is the first year it has come into the garden, and we don't have Japanese knotweed nearby so I am hoping it is something else.  Could it be buckwheat as we have grown buckwheat as a green manure crop before and it is very easy to pull up?

Dug up a row of Red Duke of York this evening - they'd stiffled most weeds but there were a couple around that I didn't recognise - a quick scan of images in this topic hasn't helped.

Any ideas - the first is a ground level spreader, second is maybe 2-3 inches high - the 'pods' go brown as they age (I guess)

Cheers,
Balders

The 2nd is hairy bittercress - get rid of it quick before those seed pods split and the seeds go everywhere  :ohmy:

I think your first may be the same weed I recently queried - knotgrass.  Google for pictures to see if it fits.

I've not seen it as a persistent weed.

Is it a newly cultivated piece of ground?

I'd just pull it all out, before it flowers, and it should eventually disappear.
[However, use gloves for this because the sap can be an irritant].

the ground where that photo was taken is not cultivated at all. The pesky blighter just keeps coming back  :wacko:

If you Google “spurge + weed” or “spurge + weed + persistence” you will get many hits.

Most are from the US. The species may differ, but the principle would be the same.

The gist appears to be to uproot early and / or use weedkiller [Roundup].

However, one website suggests that the seeds can persist for 8 years, so you may be in for long haul. 
I hope your area is not very big.
