Stubborn Weed

AlexX, yours looks like Bloody Cranesbill - an appropriate name in your case! It's a different leaf to the one the OP is asking about.

The usual "thug" is Geranium x endressii, which has pink flowers and is very vigorous. I don't know of a geranium with green flowers.

3 for ID please

The Viola odorata var. sulfurea is lovely, I saw a mass of them in a churchyard on Good Friday. 

Copper tape

Which? Gardening did some research and found that using copper tape was ineffective, in their experiments. The only reliable method was found to be slug pellets, nematodes worked against slugs but not snails.

Sorry, another ID please!

Agree with Verbascum.

Another weed id please

It's an Arum - Lords and Ladies or Cuckoo-pint. I think it's the marbled one, Arum italicum, or possibly a hybrid.

Help to identify plant plz

Looks like Petasites fragrans to me. They flower very early - January/February - if they flower at all. I don't think Butterbur leaves would be that advanced yet.

weed id please

That's White Bryony, Bryonia dioica. You will need to dig every scrap of the root out. If it's been there for a while, there will be an enormous turnip-shaped thing as well as long, flexible roots. It does have attractive berries in autumn, but it's a thug and can completely cover small plants and shrubs.

Weed or not a weed

The right-hand circled plant is not Vinca, the leaf edge is serrated. Looks a bit like a willowherb?

There's a cowslip and a strawberry as well - nice varied patch!
