What do you mean Wills?  Are you digging the borders in readiness to plant out lupins and red hot pokers?  If you are clearing the beds then I would say turn them over a fork or spades depth to clear the weeds and break up the soil.

Ditto - I thought poppy too.

I have been an allotmenteer for 30 odd years and believe me it is very hard work, but I so love doing it.  When I had a full time job it was a struggle and with it being out of sight it can sometimes be a shock when you do visit to find everything but your vegetables have grown in your plot.  I would not like to put anyone off but be prepared to devote a lot of time to it.  As others have suggested you could always share a plot.

p.s. I am a female and still managed it on my own as well as all the other household duties!  Hubby does not garden and only helps by eating my results. 

THE DANDELION PROBLEM

Perhaps Mr Dyson can invent a vacuum cleaner to suck out  all the weeds too.

By 'slime weed' I meant liverwort.  Google it Caroline and see if any of the images match your plant.
