I think it's Scarlet Pimpernel.

Garden Organic advice here: http://www.gardenorganic.org.uk/weeds/scarlet-pimpernel
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

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

I wonder if its a type of Knotweed? Not Japanese, Common variety.

http://www.naturespot.org.uk/species/knotgrass

Polygonum aviculare -- Common Knotgrass

I get lots of this on my plot and the top growth dies down to the scrubby state you show in your photo Greyscales.

I find pulling/digging it out as I go keeps it manageable, but seeds from the part come by every so often  :ohmy:

I agree with knotgrass. It is also known locally as ironweed. Try breaking the stems or hoeing it and you will see why.

Definitely looks more like the Knotgrass than Scarlet Pimpernel, so long as it's not a perennial I'm happy  :tongue2:

Thank you for the analysis.

It's a right royal pain in the rear!!!  That's what that is!!! :mad:
I suffer it everywhere!!  In pots, in the garden, it springs up in the greenhouse and on the allotment uninvited!! >:(

..........and worst of all it's one of those weeds that 9 times out of 10 snap off rather than come out cleanly when you pull on them (even in my sandy soil.)  :nowink:
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

Looks like sticky weed to me also known as velcro plant or cleavers  :)
