Is this Japanese Knotweed?
can an anyone help me identify this plant? I’m worried it’s Japanese Knotweed - we already have some knotweed near our house (not on the side where this plant is) and I really, really don’t want it!
thanks in advance

No it’s a Bryony or Bindweed ...
will be able to give a proper ID ... but it’s Definitely Not Japanese Knotweed. 😊 👍

Derbyshire but with a Nottinghamshire postcode.
Looks like hedge bindweed. If you fork it out gently, it will probably have a thick fleshy long root with it. The roots go down a long way and the only way I have found to eradicate it, is to paint the leaves with glyphosate gel.
Phew, thank you both for the ID. I will try the glyphosate gel 👍
