What's this in my neighbor's garden

Just curious and concerned what might be growing over the fence and if it could make it's way over to ours 

Any Ideas?

    Looks alarmingly like Bindweed ; I'm already blessed with it !

    Hedge bindweed. Paint the leaves with glyphosate gel. The roots go down too far to fork out completely.

    Looks like bindweed or if lucky then morning glory. I'm sure someone will be able to give a definite answer.

    Eeek! Bindweed!   

    Man the barricades, and repel every tiny shoot.  It’s evil.

    That looks like the dreaded bindweed😲 I could be wrong but the leaves look right and if it is long and twisted around things then it is. Been trying to keep it out of my garden for years, one little piece will grow and it goes under slabs and weed membrane with ease.😬😠🙁
  • Okay I thought it could be the dreaded JKW .. so will a regular strong weed killer like galup 360 help 

    Thanks all
  • This was also in the garden and getting quite big, any idea if it's a concern?

    No concern, it's a variegated shrub of some sort ?Weigela. Stops the neighbours looking at you!

    I would spray the dreaded bindweed with glyphosate. That is in Galup 360 and other weedkillers with glyphosate in them.

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
  • Yeah I'm going to nip around and suggest it and even offer to treat it myself as it benefits me if it pops up under the fencing 

    At least the shrub isn't a concern and yeah adds some privacy, I bet I seem like a right nosey sod Haha I just want to make sure theres nothing to worry about in the garden and surroundings

    Don't think that is anything to worry about, looks like Cornus or Weigela. Can you get a closer picture of flowers?
