Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

Loads of #aquilegia popping up everywhere. Need to deadhead them before they turn to seed! #columbine

These #aquilegia #columbine grow like weeds in my garden and drive me up the wall. However at the back of my border they do look quite pretty!

09/05/18 #plantid some sort of aquilegia: quite pretty but the Bain of my garden as they self seed and go everywhere blocking other plants. Anyone know what type this is? Never looked ‘inside’ the flower before!! #plantid-aquilegia

It looks like just common aquilegia (aquilegia vulgaris).

I usually deadhead all plants before they set seed but I only have a small garden so it's not such a chore.

@ublaszko I am going to make a determined effort to stop this this year! 🙂 It gets everywhere, in between all my other plants so I can't get to the roots to dig it out. And in the gravel at the side of the house. Pretty they may be, but to me, they are a weed!! If I keep deadheading it, will that stop them growing back next year, or just stop new ones growing?! 😡

They're perennials so they will come back next year but you can stop new ones growing if you deadhead regularly. The rest you can pull out by hand. I don't think there's any need to dig out all the roots.
