Dunno DL .

 To me it's a British knot weed p[lain & simple , have a look in Google images  under the Latin name of Polygonum pensylvanicum there are some good likenesses.

Could you mean 'redshank' Cloddopper? Wherever there's some from of cultivation there it tends to be (though I confess to being rather partial to the garden cultivar forms of Persicaria). A google search for Persicaria maculosa will find some pics and there's a good link here: http://www.gardenorganic.org.uk/weeds/redshank

Just noticed a plant in my garden which looks just like the pic.  I know it's not Rosebay Willowherb, but grows into something like a small, weedy version of that.  It could be called Broad-leaved Willowherb.  As I said before, you'll need to grow some on to be sure, especially with so many possibilities.

Rosebay willow herb is the the big show-offy one. Common willow herb has a smaller less significant flower head.

I didn't realise the thread was still running  .  Alison has been pulling some weeds out the raised beds that mainly contain composted horse muck, coir waste and vermiculite there was plenty of knot weed .

 I could have put up some pictures of different stages of my knot weeds growth & also some of the other horse resistant weeds that have come from the same beds .
