This looks a bit weedy but  curious to know what it is before I uproot it. :)

    One of the Willowherbs I think.

    Weed with lots of seed.

    Probably Rosebay Willowherb (so flowers are reddish/purple) but there is a white version too.

    Zillions of fluffy seeds will float around and germinate all over the place if you allow it to seed

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    They have big fat roots which you need to remove completely, or they'll grow back.

    It's a willowherb but I don't think it's rosebay. Looks more like Epilobium hirsutum, Great Willowherb

    not that it makes much difference, above comments are still true.
