What is this plant?

Hi, I've got 2 lovely climbers in my garden but I've no idea what they are so not sure how to look after them properly.  They have a profusion of very small pink flowers which later turn into berrys.  Would be grateful for any ideas so I can research them.  Thanks

Where do I start?!

Hi Tara, I was in a similar position to you a couple of years back.  Be patient and you'll be surprised what comes up.  The best thing I've found is to take photos throughout the year so you know what bulbs come up and what the flowers look like etc.  It's amazing how quickly you forget even if you think you won't so it's really useful to look through them and see how the garden changes throughout the seasons so you can decide what to keep and what to plant.

Passion Flower

Posted: 11/09/2012 at 12:53

Hi everyone.  I have a very rampant passion flower which is lovely and had loads of flowers on it this year but they all opened one at a time.  Is this normal?  Is there anyway to encourage the flowers to open together otherwise it just looks like a rampaging weed as the flowers are hidden if they only open up one at a time.

Thanks so much for all your help.  This is such a great forum.

Thanks Excitable Boy that explains why I thought they were weeds as they are EVERYWHERE!  Stupid question but how do I cut down?  Just cut down the flower stem or something more drastic?

Wow, ok thanks.  I won't dig them all up then!  The prize is the knowledge that you've kept the foxgloves alive!  Thanks again.

Hi Alina, after doing some research I think you may be right and they're suckers.  I've taken some photos but for some reason they're not that in focus, sorry.  Hope they help

This is one I managed to pull up earlier today.

This is the same root but with the grass taken away showing further shoots.

I don't think it's one of the trees in our garden but there is a tree behind us, against the fence, which has a similar leaf.  I have pulled down a branch to take the photo below:

 Is there any way I can kill them and not kill the neighbours tree if they are coming from it?
