Shame you're not nearer Clueless. Could pass it on to one of my less well off customers.

Probably wrong but do you grow Solomons seal? The white bits on the right hand root look like it.

Just identified it as Oxalis Corniculata, now wondering if anyone has had any success removing it. 

When I managed a nursery they were sent in as bedding plants can you believe it?!

If you dig make sure the soil is nice and moist and workable. The roots go deep for such an innocent little plant and they will come back. Dig down and ease out slowly. Only way to do it. If you don't want to use chemicals

Hi Heather  you can pretty much do what you like with them. They are very vigorous and hard to kill off so if you want to cut back go ahead!

Liseals no don't bother 

Artful yes. Will only attract slugs nothing else and they are good in compost heap 

With compost heaps the list of no's is far smaller than the list of yesses. If it will rot fairly quickly, has no horrid chemicals in it, won't attract vermin and is not a perennial weed root chuck it in!!!!

I know someone is going to think of something I've not covered and come back at me lol!

Yes GG just tight when it comes to postage lol. All sent 2nd class.

They will die off but they will take an age to do it! Like FG says if you want to plant you will need to speed them on their way. You can hire a stump grinder if you can get it to them otherwise drill big holes in all of them, as many as you can be bothered with and fill with soil. Will get the wood eaters in there and rain water to make them rot. Works better than any root killer

Hi David  Do you know the variety? Some forms sucker and others have a single trunk so it varies.

What a beautiful place to live 

Do you want quite a natural look? If so I would go with things like Filipendula, Flag Irises, Willow...smaller varieties not the big tree and Cornus as already suggested. Treat yourself to a few of these too. Once you have them they self seed well.
