Hey guys!

Is anyone able to help me identify these weeds please?
Also would be good to know, what the soil condition these weeds signify and what kind of selective herbicide is needed to get rid of them.

Thanks heaps!

Weed 1

Weed 2

Weed 1, not sure but looks similar to wild carrot.
Weed 2, Either a mallow or perhaps hydrocotyle.

Both IDs would be easier with flowers.

Weed 2 is possibly scrambling speedwell, Google some images and compare. This is a plant to be admired for its racy name at least.

Yep, I agree - number 1 is storksbill, there has been a lot around here this winter.
Number 2 looks like celery-leaved buttercup.

Storksbill is quite difficult to control, but we have had good results with a mixture of Preside and Select (+ Uptake spraying oil). Preside will also control buttercup.

weed 1 is young carrot weed. Very difficult to get rid of due to tap root which will regenerate, but is edible to a variety of livestock in its fresh young form. (chooks, pukes, cattle, sheep, goats)
weed 2 is buttercup. Check your soil for ph. balance. Lime may be needed as buttercup thrives on acidic/sour soil. Sheep will eat off the flowers without real harm, although they are not ideal for either sheep or for control, they can reduce the probability of seeding.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

If by carrot weed you mean parsley dropwort (there are several different weeds called carrot weed), it isn't that - unfortunately I have that as well :(

probably the dropwort one. It has a distinctive carrot smell and flowers on it similar to Queen Ann's Lace, though not as big. Pukeko dig out the root as far as they can reach here, at this time of the year, so it is palatible..

Stikki, carrot weed has a denser rosette than that and probably not just 5 leaves like that.
The buttercup is not the creeping one, it is sown by seed and does not have runners

Hi, storksbill 1st photo. Lime is very beneficial to start and control this weed. Good luck.

Cheers

Ok, I've been out with the camera this morning and found a few specimens to photograph.
1 is Pasley dropwort. Please note, in juvenile single plants it does not show the rosette it will later develop. Rosettes develop by way of the tiny tubers that it produces on the ends of the root stalks and they become multi stemmed. Note the tiny brown end on this specimen. It is the tuber just beginning to grow.

2. Comparison between Parsley dropwort and storks bill. Leaf shape very similar, but storkbill is much larger and slightly paler green
3. Wild carrot. Note it has a hairy stem and leaves and is much finer.
Wild achillea, known commonly as yarrow can look similar.
4. Creeping buttercup. aka meadow buttercup.It can have purplish markings on older leaves. Fairly vigorousWe have a shiny leaved one as well which doesn't creep, but uncertain of which one that is.

Wow! Thanks Stikkibeek!

Do you think a selective broadleaf weed killer would tackle these weeds for me?

Any other recommendations of a broadleaf selective herbicide?
I've got about 150m2 lawn infested with it.

Thanks!
