it is popping up everywhere, through the lawn, in the paving,around the pond. Thought it may be a sapling but can’t work out which one!

    suckers rather than sapling I think. Is there something that's been cut down?

    A lot of trees have been cut down as it was very over grown but these suckers are spread over an area of around 30x30 meters! Any idea how to eradicate?

    It looks a bit like Leycesteria to me.

    Any poplar trees in the vicinity? They sucker like mad.
