Seedling Id please :-)

I broke the stem when pulling it, so there are now. 2 parts to it :-)
There are hundreds of these seedlings appearing in both our back and front gardens and we aren't sure whether to pull them all or not. They look a bit Bindweed-ish to me, which unnerved me. I'm sure one of you experts will be able to help...

Tkanks in advance!

    Looks like bindweed.
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor. 

  • Hi blue onion,

    Find attached a couple of pictures of the seedling in situ... 

  • Hi Lyn, 
    Don't say that word :-)  my allotment experience makes me very worried about that prospect, with my hoe sharpened and poised.
    Kind regards

    Looks like black bindweed, Fallopia convolvulus, a... relative of the JK.

    That’s a tree seedling.   Probably sycamore.

  • That sounds more appealing!  :-) We've got hawthorns near the affected areas and a field maple near just one of them. What do you reckon! :-) I'm almost breathing normally again :-) 

    Many thanks for all the help everyone!
