Is this a weed?


 Hello, I have lots of these in my garden and don't know if they are weeds or wild flowers. I know that weeds are only in the eye of the beholder but does anybody know what they are please?

    They look like a weed we have here, but I don't know its name.  But it gets pulled out!

    Looks like one of the willowherbs - pull it out - it seeds like mad.

    I like to keep a few, but I much prefer the larger ones, Great Willowherb Is my fave.

    As Dove and Busy Bee say, they do get everywhere though. image

    I get those too but didn't know I what they were, they pulled up though because anything you don't want in the garden is a weed .image They do pop up all over but pull out easily which is good image

    That's not a very nice one, very small flowers for a lot of leaves

    I like to keep some rosebay for the elephant hawkmoths. Also hairy willow herb because the soil beside my pond is very wet or very dry depending on ground water levels and it's one of the few plants that will tolerate that
