Or Galium aparine! Goosegrass is a very common name for it.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

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

Thanks, just did a search and it's edible and medicinal. Don't think I'm going to try it though  :nowink:

Thanks, I've heard that horseradish is a good companion to potatoes, convenient as it is in one of the potato beds.

Be warned, it is a very invasive thug in the open ground :mad:
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

It spreads quite rapidly and is difficult to get rid of once planted, as the smallest bit of root left in situ will regrow.

Indeed.  I had a small amount, and it took me 2 years to get rid of it through weedkiller and deprivation of light.

There's loads of this in the hedge bottom at the back of our allotment and some has seeded into the bit of meadow we've created.  Should I be pleased or get out there with the weed killer? It looks a bit nettle-ish but not sure what it is...

It looks very much as though it's Jack-by the- Hedge (Alliaria petiolata)
It's quite common in hedgerows.

See this link, it can have culinary uses, but it may be a problem.

If it is garlic mustard the garlic smell of the plant gives it away  ;)

Oh thanks for that, looks like you are right.  It's definitely not garlicky. It's been driving me mad wondering what it is.  Thank you!
