Good morning!
My garden Is slowly being covered by the weed in the attached photos. It is low growing and pulls up with very white fleshy roots.

Concern it might be Japanese knotweed - but tallest I’ve seen it is around 10 inches.

Not J.K. Enchanter's Nightshade. Bit of a thug but not as poisonous as Deadly Nightshade.

Hi Owdboggy - certainly looks like Enchanters Nightshade - many thanks for information!! Totally overwhelmed my asparagus patch - and not easy to get on top of by the look of things...

Ditto, the sun was nice on my back however.

Definitely Enchanters Nightshade, we have had it popping up in our garden for the last couple of years. I always try to get every piece out before it flowers and sets seeds-the roots are white and easily removed, but you’ve got to keep on top of it before it overtakes everywhere!
