Thanks for your reply but I haven't seen any flowers on the plant like those that shown in the example for Himalayan Balsam.
The leaves on the plant in my garden are similiar but there are no flowers. There are no flowers on the plant that I have in my garden either the ones that seem to develop on the Himalayan balsam or Japanese knowweed.
I can see that if you click the tree symbol you can up load an image but i can see that this isn't working. How long has this been happening?
I am very keen to get this plant idnetified. It doesn't seem to grow as quickly as that suggested by the details I have read about Japanese knotweed but it seems quite fast.
I keep saying this- but once again if you upload from an external photo sharing site site like photobucket or flicker you can post a picture still using the tree icon-it is only the direct load that has been out of action for the past couple of days
