Just keep pulling it out as soon as it pops up. Its easier to move house than get rid of it.

Anyone identify this plant for me?

Has it ever flowered?

I think I could do the zip line. After all,  I walked all around ayers rock and climbed the sydney harbour bridge( with the aid of a lot of ibuprofen). Its parting with fifty quid that I could spend on plants that's the problem.

Just been watching Griff rhys jones wizzing down a zip line in Blaenau ffestiniog. Coincidentally thats where we're heading onThursday. I think I'll stick with the nursery followed by a cadwalladers ice cream in Criccieth.

Not bindweed.

Not sure that its jap knot weed, it tends to have thicker red spotted stems. Is it on its own or is there more on the other side of the fence?
