    Is it possible to see photos of the whole plants please?

    There are several plants with similar leaves. The size and the way the leaves are arranged on the plant will give us more clues. 😊

  • Is the one in the top photo some sort of doc leaf and the one in the lower photo a type of sow thistle?
  • Dock in No. 1 - will need digging out to ensure you remove the whole root.
    Can't think of the name for 2nd  - Hairy Bittercress  ?  a spreader and self seeder but easily pulled out.

    You’ve also got some Creeping Buttercup in the second pic.

    I don't think the rosette of leaves is hairy bittercress - could be shepherd's purse, perhaps?  Could be hard to identify definitively because a lot of these weeds are a bit variable...

    Depends on the size.

    Could be hedge mustard or field mustard?



    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
  • The wiggly leaf is up to six or seven inches long.

    Think I'd go with one of the mustards ... that family anyway ... just pull them out before they seed ... likely to be biennial so pull them out now before they put up a flower spike and seed next year and at least you'll reduce the numbers.
