Hi dexterlancer, to me it looks like a Rose of Jerico or Resurrection plant, but I could be wrong. See if this link is any use:

If it wasn't for the daisies, clover, dandelions and their relatives, and all the other volunteers out there, I wouldn't have a 'lawn' in summer. 

I second that!

A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one Year and out the other.

I hope I was missed?

I think he's in France somewhere, Verdun, don't think any of us would buy anything from him. But he does have some good ideas that some might find useful.

Definitely knotweed, del. Perhaps I should clarify that I live in Switzerland and our waste disposal is different to yours. We do not have landfills here, only large incineration plants where all household rubbish except recyclables such as PET, newspapers, glass, etc. is burned in huge furnaces.

Ours crept across from neighbour who had bought it as a small plant. Sale of JN is now forbidden and there have been warnings to get rid.

We had JK behind our pond about 8 years ago, chopped it down, put it in the rubbish bin (our rubbish goes to an incineration plant) and sprayed copiously with glyphosate every time a bit dared to poke its nose up! Took about two seasons before it disappeared completely. But the bamboo we innocently planted in it's place was a damned sight worse! Again, glyphosate and more glyphosate, it finally died but are still pulling out the odd dead roots.
