Hi

Can anyone identify this plant, it is growing everywhere, even in my greenhouse. Thanks

Almost looks like clover to me?

Oxalis. It can be very invasive, grows from teeny weeny bulbils.

it looks oxallis as it grows from small corms and they do spread .

Its almost certainly oxallis and its almost inpossible to get rid of  [ and I never even planted it. It just appeared].

A while ago I got some oxalis from a free T&M offer, I did some research on it and I only planted the bulbs in a large pot, I'm so pleased I did. I don't like them at all.  I would just apply weed killer to the leaves and try to kill it off.
