    Can anyone identify this weed, it’s in  my neighbours garden and spreading very quickly into my garden, shallow roots and easy to remove, the seeds on the balls stick to your clothes, seems to be self seeding

    It looks a little like creeping buttercup a3watson.

    Funnily enough I was at a garden centre today and saw some nice geum’s , orange flowers but the thing I posted didn’t seem to have flowers beforehand, unless itnbloomed when I was on holiday.  It has spread like wildfire and when lifting it our
    the ground the green things which I presume are the seeds shake loose and goes everywhere. No wonder it has spread so fast. 

    thank you for your comments. It’s helped, Because I didn’t know what it was I was concerned it could be poisionous. Sadly my neighbour doesn’t give a monkeys about their garden and it’s full of weeds. 

    Thanks again
