Does anyone know what this brown clover like weed is? It is growing in all of my pots and the more I get rid of it the more it comes back! Any help would be grateful 

Thank you

How odd! It's showing on my screen! Maybe my settings are wrong! No idea what to do now!

I've tried to load it again. Hopefully it's now showing !

It's an Oxalis of some kind, pretty but can become quite invasive

If it looks like the one at the bottom of this page (not the top photo), it's creeping wood sorrel (oxalis corniculata), a real nuisance:

You need to get the complete root out when pulling it (easier said than done!)

Thank you mat & bob....great advice

Yes, here's some info re oxalis - it can be a pest - scroll down and you'll see the one you've got 

Try to get rid of it - you'll never succeed totally, but keep trying like the rest of us 

Good luck!

That's a welcome question. I have some of that and because its quite pretty and looks quite delicate I'd been tending it. And there's now more of it. I get the picture and will take the advice you've offered Yvonne and get brutal with it. Useful forum.
