    I will try and take a photo, but it seems to be growing along the top of the lawn, like strawberry shoots, does that help image?

    You need to kill the roots flumpy or it will just keep coming back . You can use a lawn 'spot' weedkiller and apply it carefully - there are quite a few on the market I think, or if you have large areas of them it might be worth using a weed and feed on the grass which will kill them off and feed the grass at the same time. All GCs and diy stores stock these products and sometimes the own brand weed n feed products are as successful as the big brands in my experience. image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    It's been a shocker of a year for weeds in the grass for me. Do weeds die over winter, or do they just have a nice nap under ground and come back stronger each year?

    They will come back next year Tootles, completely refreshed and raring to go,

    Humph! Our lawn is covered this year. Thing is, when I pull them up I rarely seem to get the end of the root. It always seems to snap about half way down. Is it essential to get the whole root out?
