I sowed some seeds from a packet of summer annuals a little while ago. This is one of the seedlings that has emerged. It looks very familiar but I've no idea what it is.

Anyone recognise it?

    The leaves look a bit like a Morning Glory

    I was thinking that, but I hesitated 'cos the seed-leaves don't look right... they're usually lobed aren't they?

    Many years since I've grown them Dove.
    As I'm forever pulling bindweed round here I'm used to seeing such leaves :)

  • Am thinking along the lines of Pete. The seed leaves look more like Morning Glory than Bindweed as Bindweed usually has uniform leaf shapes.

    Doesn't look like any of the common Dioscerea (Bryrony species) seedlings either.

    Most likely to be some non native plant from a packet of summer annuals. Most common weeds can be found in my garden and none of them look like that

    Many thanks everyone. I knew it was familiar but just couldn't remember and I'm pretty sure it will be morning glory. It's one of the stock items in packets of annuals and I've had many in the garden in the past.

    Do let us know how it turns out when it flowers
    Good luck
