Hi All, Many thanks for all your suggestions. My neighbour planted it at the back of his Koi pond (his pride and joy) and isn't going to dig it all up to get rid of it so I'll continue cutting it back and using weedkiller. 

Problem bamboo

I have quite a problem with my neighbours bamboo which is quite a thug.  It is 9ft tall and becoming very rampant, sending thumb-sized spears through into my garden. They travel about 6 inches below the surface and have quite strong roots along their length; it's a hell of a job trying to stop them taking over that end of my garden.  I have tried digging them up but that's quite a task. I would be very grateful if anyone could offer some sort of solution to how I deal with this problem please.

Two of my variegated Acers produced plain green stems and leaves this year. I don't know why this happened but I just cut them out like you do all variegated reversions.

Like all of you I'm infuriated with the BBC for bumping GW just for wimbledon, makes you wonder what's going to happen during the Olympics. We could be without GW for more weeks than we think!!!

Hi Greyfleur, if you do a search on google for virginia creeper it comes up with pictures of leaves just like yours. If you want to cover something fast these two plants will do a serious job for you!
