    Could someone please ID this weed? The surface is bark covered cardboard and the weed is restricted to an area approx 1’ x 1’

    Need a better photo of the leaves. Looks like celandine but need a closeup.

    Eeech, not something you want in the garden.

    I like the bit in the article which says the tubers have been roasted and eaten, and the roasting process 'may' reduce the very irritant toxins.... Maybe give that a miss then!

    I actually love this little plant, and so do the bees, and for me is one of the first signs that spring is on it's way. It does come up all over the garden and is easy to dig out if you need to, but once it has flowered it disappears below ground until next year.

    Plenty of it in the verges down our lane. It makes a better show than the dandelions that follow it.
