I am not 100% sure but I think the broad leaf plant is Borage...  If it has tiny blue flowers then that is what it is.. Comfrey flowers can be white, blue or lilac in colour, the flowers grow in clusters of bells on a long stem.   I have both Borage and Comfrey and my Comfrey has hairier leaves than the Borage and are longer and more pointed.... though quite similar.

Thanks Brambles, I will wait and see what flowers come and then I should know.  I would still like to know what the small read leaved one is.  I didn't see it before, it's growing along the house wall.

I still have no idea what this is, I have searched the net with no luck.  +It grows close to the ground and deep red underneath.  Oh it grows fast too.

I think it is a persecaria of some sort. Common weeds in this family are pale persecaria, knotgrass and willow weed but this looks like an ornamental form. Most persecarias have small pink flowers. Many of them have the distinctive dark chevron on the leaves. Some are annuals and others perennials. It may be Perecaria capitata (try google images).

Salmo, thank you thats the one.  I Googled as you said and it is not really a weed,,,is it??  It will have pretty flowers.  The only worry I have is that it is growing along the house wall, so hope it doesnt make any problems.  Thank you again. :)

not sure of the name but get rid ASAP

it goes nuts and spreads by seed and runners

as babbyann said it grows just like strawberries and has small yellow flowers

I don't know the name of it either and I have spent ages searching google in the past trying to identify it, so hope that someone knows. I have it around the edges of my plot where it comes through from neighbouring plots, so I can't dig the root out completely. It is horrid stuff, it produces a smallish, but difficult to remove if you can't  get a fork under it, tap root, and it spreads as Barley said like mad.  :)
