I’m ok with that. These are chinook hops, if that helps with the name.

Edit: with picture. That bag is about 3 cones deep, I’d guess close to 300 cones total.

Identify a weed for me please. Should have taken a photo but pulled them all up now. Quite shallow root so very easy to pull up. Leaves a little like coriander on a red stem. About 8 stems or radials coming off central bit where roots are.

This is a difficult question, given no knowledge of the bigness, habit, location, flower or smell, however, my top guess is Herb Robert (Geranium robertianum), though there are many other contenders that spring to mind including - Lovage (Levisticum officinale) which has early on red stems but will have fairly powerful roots or even Hairy Bittercress (Cardamine hirsuta).  Is it Herb Robert, HZJ?


Herb fucking Robert, a fairly pungent thing

I think it may well be. Are the stems like spokes and is it quite a low lying plant? Not noticed them before this year and now they're all over the place. Same happened with horsetail a few years back. Herb Robert is a million times easier to pull up though.

Heheh, yes they all come out of a central thingy, a bit like spiders' legs only red and quite strongly scented.

Spreads like mad but is an annual and as you say very easy to remove should you want to, so not really much of an issue I dont think. Unlike the bindweed and green alkanet which is nigh on impossible to get rid of. I actually like both in moderation but I don’t want my whole garden covered so we have to mutually accept a state of permanent low-level conflict.
