    A good hoeing is worth two waterings.

    Bindweed.  The kind we have here is a real menace.

    Early days but bindweed seems to have a clear lead. Predictive text suggests it should be called hindered.

    Bindweed, 100%. I mean, I agree that yellow Oxalis is a pain, but it just sits low to the ground in clumps, it doesn't swamp flower beds and borders so aggressively!

    I don't see why not @Alan Clark2 in Liverpool. It's a very large weed. Always a plant in the wrong place.

    Bindweed. Although Jujube trees and their seedlings are damn close.

    Raspberry. Seeds get scattered everywhere by blackbirds and it then spreads by runners popping up all over the place. The deer love eating the leaves but even they can't keep on top of it.

    Brambles and ivy. Doing my best to clear them, but they sneak up behind my back and laugh at me. No bindweed that I’ve seen here.
