What weed is this it's a pain, can it be eradicated
Oxalis - I've got plenty of it too.
I dig it out sometimes but it's everywhere, so a losing battle.

Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
I think it’s called Oxalis, not sure exactly which one. I haven’t been “infested” by it so can’t advise how to eradicate it. I’m sure someone with the appropriate knowledge will help.
Looks like this stuff. Small, cute, and shoots out seeds at an alarming rate. Just keep pulling it out before it sets seed.
the only way to get rid of it is by using weedkiller unfortunately. Digging it out is difficult as the roots are deep and if you leave even a tiny bit of root behind it regrows. It spreads by both seed and runners. The best time to spray with weedkiller is in spring with another treatment later in the year if needed.
I just live with it. Pull it out where I see it and know it will be back.. Like Spanish bluebells, pull ,forget, repeat.....
In London. Keen but lazy.
You don't need weedkiller. Just pull it out when you see it.
