My logic is, if it would've cost money it's Not A Weed. I use this logic to justify to thecatsfather spending more money ("well this has self seeded/appeared/grown from a cutting etc, and it would've cost £8, so I can now spend that £8 on Something Else") . Recently used after liberating a pretty campanula from between pavement slabs down the road, and transplanting valerian from the street gutter to the garden

Can anyone please help with naming this plant?

I got sweet rocket seeds free with either GW or Garden Answers mag last year, and threw them liberally on the garden. They are now everywhere! So pretty sure that's what they are :) S

Yes I know about the dock thanks fidgetbones. Been away for a week then a week of rain, and everything has GROWN, but the yellow thing which I had assumed was a weed and pulled out shoots in previous years, has flowered today so wanted to check!

nutcutlet, from pics online you're right, thanks! It's for sale on Crocus etc (diervilla sessilifolia) so officially Not A Weed . And they say it goes well with hypericum, which it's  next to, so looks once again like another wise planting by our house's predecessor-before-last :)

Those patio clematis are the ones I linked to, the Boulevard collection. good to see Abilene in real life; gives me a lot of confidence in getting one, thanks Chicky

Cross posted. 

Cherry (esp if edible) would make sense as it's in the "fruity section" of the garden, which was well planned out by last-but-one owner. It's between a gooseberry bush and a tayberryy, and near a plum, greengage & Apple trees.

getting excited now, looking forward to cherries, nomnomnom
