    Wood Avens. It came up like cress this year, there are a few plants which are growing out of clumps of harts tongue fern making them tricky to deal with. And I had to get rid of an ornamental grass when some kind of creeping weed grass got into into it... there was no way of dealing with it.

    Oxalis, the red/brown type. I ignore it most of the time because it's indestructible anyway and not too visible.

    The vote seems pretty conclusive.
    The outright winner of the WPW trophy 2021 is bindweed.🏆 
    Dishonourable mention is awarded to brambles, ivy,  wood avens, horsetail and leylandii
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Oxalis doesn't just sit there it moves through our veg plot, bindweed and masses of huge flaming brambles coming from neighbours garden

    Chickweed, since I gave up keeping budgies it is everywhere on the plot, even taller than the potato haulms.

    The others mentioned are easy, a spray with weedkiller and regular use of the hoe does for them all!

    And no seeding weeds in the compost heaps ever!
