Any idea what this is please?

Its popping up all over the garden. Might be seedlings from neighbouring trees or weeds. feels like something I need to keep on top of but would like to know what I'm dealing with.
Thanks for any suggestions. These photo's are in a shady spot but its also growing over the other side and looking like it coming under the neighbours fence in one place.

    I think it might be Enchanter's Nightshade or Circaea lutetiana.  I think it's a pretty wildflower but I know it can be invasive in heavy soils.  In my chalky garden, it's no problem.

  • Thanks, just looked that up on the RHS website and agree it does look like that.

    I can certainly vouch for it's invasive nature.

  • Yes, just noticed it in a couple of neighbours gardens when walking the dog. Certainly looks invasive. Think I'll spray it where I can and dig up where I can't. I'll bet its one of those where a root fragment can become a new plant?
