Hi We cleared some ground and these seedlings sprouted all over, very quickly. Can you identify at this early stage?

Hello Mike, could you add a photo please?

Hi Sorry about delay in seeing photo.
I think that it could be Arabidopsis thaliana, commonly called thale cress, which is a common weed of waste ground, with a very quick reproductive cycle (about 6 wks!).
It's small genome has made it a plant of much research, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabidopsis_thaliana for an interesting read.
Hi Sarah thanks, looking at your link I would agree with your identification. It was amazing how quickly it found it's way to our garden, we are looking forward to seeing it flower.
