Willowherb?

Use this forum for identification of plants and flowers found in the UK. To allow us to help provide accurate identification we need clear pictures of the whole plant, where it is growing and close up pictures of flowers, buds or seed heads if any available. It would also be useful to see pictures showing the leaf attached to the stem.

Many of these plants have been popping up around my garden so I'm just checking if they are willowherb?

Kind regards,
Lisa

The thing about Willowherb is that it is very invasive in the garden and once you have one lot of seeds disperse then its everywhere. Luckily its easy enough to pull up and keep in check (only leaving what you need for the tortoise) if you don't allow the seeds to pop and pull while the flowers are still on the plant.
