Will keep my fingers crossed for your brother and all the others - this part of the world usually suffers from drought!

No - fortunately we are on top of the cliffs in Felixstowe though lower areas have been under water and populations evacuated.  They are expecting another sea surge tonight!

Don't think its Hairy Bittercress as it didn't grow in a rosette shape but more sprawling and intertwining.

Can't find a picture of Snap Nut anywhere except in motor vehicles websites!!!

Its possible as I have some of that under the trees in our garden but it certainly doesn't look like the type we have and the one under the tree is not hairy.

Thanks for reply landgirl,

I had already dug it out before thinking to take a photo but the leaves look 'heartshaped' and Pilosella have longer leaves.  The leaves are definitely hairy though.  We never saw any flowers on it.  The roots were thick and fairly fibrous.

This weed was growing vigorously in my lawn about 50cm square - I have dug it out but would love to know what it is.  Took the photo after it was dug out of lawn

I hate these videos - would much rather have the option of choosing a script so can copy and save.

Thanks Verdun - I will wait until after flowering - do get one - the flowers are beautiful and abundant - even though we can see our black plastic pipe - the flowers above are worth it and look lovely on a brick wall and the leaves are evergreen in Winter.  You do have to pull or cut off browned ones in the Sujmmer though.

Thanks Verdun I will try that.  When would you suggest I do the cutting back as this Clematis flowers in the Spring.  Should I wait until it flowers again or would it be safe to do it now?
