Hi, i was wondering if anyone could help me identify or possibly suggest a solution to getting rid of this very aggressive weed that has infested my back garden, i've tried digging it up and weedkiller,but it just comes back as bad as it was before. Thanks in advance.

It is a wild geranium/cranesbill.  Seeds everywhere.  A pest.

Aargh! I have that too! I don't know what it is, but it comes up easily, thank goodness. It's everywhere - pots, flagstones, flowerbeds, you name it, it's there! And what is worse, the rabbits & slugs don't touch it!

Geranium lucidum, if you grow it hard it goes a lovely red after flowering.
