 It has produced no flowers or fruit at all but put on masses of growth. Any ideas? Thanks

    I could be wrong, but I'm inclined to think it's a kiwifruit.

    Actually sue, I thought the same . The leaves don't look shiny enough for grapes.

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.

    I would say grape of some kind - my Kiwi leaves are oval and hairy, but perhaps other kiwi's have grape-shapes leaves?

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    On googling kiwi leaves they seem to be heart shaped. There are no hairs on the leaves or stems...could be another variety - I know nothing about kiwis.

    That looks like it, Dove - felt sure it had to be a vitis of some kind.

    Well Dovefromabove I think you have got it! From what I read should be wonderful in autumn - I'll post a picture when it colours and forget about fruit, flowers, pruning just encourage it to spread!!

    Sara4 - LOL - I can't believe you said that!! As I took the photo I actually bent my fingers slightly away from the camera in case it picked up the dirt!!

    I'd love to have one - I don't really have the space, but I am so tempted every autumn when I see them colour up ....
