    I'll make a start....

    nettles
    couch grass
    chickweed
    dandelions
    Creeping buttercup

              I've got quite a few of my own thanks, the native ones I can cope with it's the stuff those balmy Victorians imported that get me, flippin Ground Elder is my bane.

                    Does anyone want some creeping woodsorrel? I've got plenty to spare. Its very pretty and hardy with perennial roots so it comes up year after year without any attention. You just need a little bit to start with and it'll soon colonise your whole garden and all your containers.

                        Looks like I've got everything you've already all got. So not much I can trade except wild rocket. It comes up quite readily, but it self seeds like mad. And there are hectares and hectares of it round us. It's impossible to get rid of. But if you want ground cover with tiny white flowers that bees like, it's not bad. Several flurries of flowers throughout the year (first lot already in blossom here, despite the atrocious weather conditions). I should add it doesn't seem to be an edible variety: it's very coarse and very bitter.

                        Glad to send some to anyone who wants it...

                              Ground elder
                              Dandelions
                              Bittercress
                              Bamboo - has invaded from next door and is rapidly taking over the whole bed.

                              I also have a really pretty lawn weed which I love but I have to confess there's not much grass left, between that and the moss. It has tiny pale blue flowers in summer. Can't remember the name; I'd never come across it until I bought this house.

                              Edit: Probably speedwell of some flavour or other. Very small, though, just like little pale blue stars in the lawn.

                              I have some nettles but they are in a fairly well-behaved clump down the side of the shed so I don't regard them as a weed and I leave them for the butterflies.
