Any idea what this might be? Just started growing between a raised bed and fence, and not something I’ve planted. 


  • first guess it looks like a clematis and if so given the time of year it could possible be a group 3 which means you cut it back hard in spring. It should flower late June early July.

    I've seen that leaf shape on some clematis species.  Is is possibly coming through from next door? 
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Think I realised what’s happened. After we moved in we had a bit of a clear out in the garden, and I must have cut it back to put a terracotta pot where it is. The previous owners must have planted it. I was sure it was dead or a weed. 

    Oh well, it’s a pleasant surprise on a sunny day. Curious to see how it flowers in July.  

    Thanks again!
