 Would I be right in thinking all 3 are weeds, or is the one in the top picture a plant?

    The top one is an oxalis, I don't know which one.

    Red dead nettle and chickweed at the bottom

    Thanks, so basically I should just treat them as weeds.

    Depends on your gardening style. I like some dead nettle and chickweed about

    I've got both...always seem to get red dead nettle after the soil has been dug but its a pretty little flower image

    Well now I know that it is a wildflower and not a weed I might leave some somewhere if I can find a suitable spot

    Chickweed is a lovely salad green in the spring - it also goes very well in a sandwich with some egg mayo image

    Whether something is a weed or a wildflower is all in the mindimage
