Hi there, just joined after reading forum

The ones in the grass look like docks. Don't go leaning on your wall, doesn't look too sturdy!

Thanks, I have a glosphate based weed killer here, so il wait until they start to green up and spot treat first as they are in clumps. Couple of sheep would probably graze them out quicker!

The tubular stems could be " cow parsley "  ( related to hog weed ) .

The cut off stalks are dock, 99% certain of that and if you take a pic of any leaves amongst them would confirm. Hogweed stalks are a much lighter colour.

 

Struggling to id the tumbled down dead things, look similar to nettle and willow herb but I don't think it's either. Better pic of the leaves and flower structure on them would help.

Not really important as either way a directed application of glyphosate will work. Painted on at a 50:50 watered down mix stirred into wallpaper paste means it only gets what you put it on.

Is either that or u get some weed killer that targets broad leaves.

Not up on weedkiller, but got some Blast/headland flail? off a farmer bloody brilliant stuff on nettles and docks but left grass untouched.

 

But either way as well waiting till spring
