Hope your friend is getting proper support in her role as a carer Verdun - Crossroads for Carers are brilliant as are  She needs to take time for herself to help with healing - she probably knows all about them, but just in case - I was sometimes surprised when visiting families that they didn't feel they qualified for any support.

Dovefromabove, Yes even Chelsea is guilty here, I thought it was called Chelsea flower show not I'm a designer show.

Virulent unknown weeds

I wouldn't use salt water!!!  

The mild winter is encouraging lots of weed seeds to germinate early - they keep coming up because lots of seeds have been scattered there.  What plants are there in the vicinity that shed a lot of seeds? In my garden there are lots of foxglove seedlings all over the place.

Maybe something your friend grew there last summer has shed seeds which are germinating now.
