    It's definitely going to be a climber or spreader

    It does to me too, but there was none of that here when we cleared this area last year and there are a lot of seedlings of this appearing. Trouble is neither of us can remember what weeds there were in this section.

    Those seeds can sit in the ground and wait for you to disturb the soil ... common in arable fields ... I've hoed a lot out of rows of sugar beet.

    Just been identified as Allaria petiolaris. Jack by the Hedgerow which was present in the garden and rife in the hedge rows here. Should have recognised it myself, seen it often enough.

    Doesn’t look anything like that to me,  looks like Bindweed.

    Really?  Doesn't look like it to me ... we shall wait and see what happens  :)


    The leaves of Jack by the Hedge aka Hedge Mustard/Garlic Mustard etc are very different https://www.fourseasonforaging.com/blog/2017/5/28/garlic-mustard-a-delicious-invasive
