That's not a big weed problem. Mowing will sort that out, just an annual. One of the mustards, or if you're in an agricultural area maybe oil seed rape

Jess is in the Garden says:

Does elder stink?! Is it a particular type that stinks?

Mine is a black lace sambuca elder and it doesn't stink at all 

See original post

 Even when you rub the leaves or stems Jess? You have to touch it to get the pong. My 'Black Lace' smells just like the wild elder. Not surprising as they're both Sambucus nigra

Orange stuff come out when you cut the stem?

Looks like Macleaya cordata.

Theflowers of the Valeriana smell nice. It like a fair bit of moisture if it's in the sun. 

Also, elder is a shrub/tree, it would  be woody at the base.

What is this vigorous plant / weed?!

Posted: 23/05/2017 at 22:16

Not sticky, not goosegrass/cleavers/Galium aparine

I should think it came from the wildflower mix, that's the nature of wildflowers if they're happy, they spread.

Might be Galium mollugo, (Hedge Bedstraw) or Galium album, (White Bedstraw), but there lots of them and I know very few

I think it's Valeriana officinalis.

Elder stinks, have the stems and leaves got a strong pungent smell? If not, then not elder
