    Hi, Can anyone identify this plant ? It has appeared in my planting beds and within what seems like days started to spread into the lawn, when you dig down on it, it is all connected via a web of roots!

    Looking through some images it doesn't look to be knot weed thankfully. But still concerned about the rate at which it is spreading.

    Thank you

    Cant see the pics.

    But if its ganja I am happy to remove it all free of charge.

    Leave the roots in, direct your halogens towards them and I will call back monthly to help clear any more away.

    Always happy to help.

    I mean recently one of the dads at school asked if I had a saw that could cut up metal. Plumbers had left a load of "tube" in his loft.

    2hrs later my van was full of copper pipe, brass fittings and a 4pk of beers for "helping out" and "getting rid of the rubbish"

    Does not look like Japanese knotweed,leaves are not pointes, plus no sheath on leaf stems.

    Definitely not Jamaican Knotweed so will have to withdraw my offer.

    Could be Common Purslane or one of it's family.
