problem weed - help please

Hi, My elderly neighbours garden has been filled with this weed for the past few years. We are separated by a brick wall but this year for the first time it is coming into my garden. It has been invasive it their garden and is now the only thing there. Any help with identification? Treatment?

    If the green tree icon doesn't work for you, as it often doesn't for me, use a hosting site like photobucket and post the "img" code here. that will show your pic 

  • thanks - mobile version not working for me, now moved to desktop!


    Now tried laptop and desktop but keep getting a scrip error when uploading a jpeg.

    Sorry!! I'll keep trying.

    Looks like Coltsfoot to me.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • Thanks Bob and Ed. That's the one. Looks like a keep digging one. I'd hate to have to remove it from next door. It's going to be an ongoing issue as they never attempt to remove it.

    Thank you, i'll just try and keep on top of it.

    Weedkiller should work.
  • I haven't done yet. Not used them before. Just spray each one?
