Can anyone identify this weed?

Hi bekkie

I think this is something that spreads by underground roots rather than putting its tips down and rooting like a bramble.

It seems a while since I've done any proper gardening, it's all been saws, loppers and shredding lately. Graft. I want to play with plants and watch things growing

Best from seed I reckon. Cheap and cheerful. For D. purpurea I like the proper purple ones and white ones with footprints.  

Other species of digitalis are worth growing as well; Ds ferruginea and lutea do very well

The oversized and the deformed don't attract me at all

I use any chipped trees and shrubs as mulch.

You'd be unlikely to get flowers this year but they biennials or perennials (depending on which ones you've got) and they'll flower eventually
