I would be very grateful if someone could identify this plant, many thanks in advance

Is this Japanese knotweed?

    Definitely not Japanese Knotweed.  You can breathe easier.  

    What it is won't come to my mind at the moment (sorry ... I recognise it but its name just won't come to mind ... I'm in the middle of making a birthday curry for OH) :s

    Someone will recognise it in a little while ...

    Looks like a philadelphus to me  - possibly P.Virginal

    Yes, I think Philadelphus too. Definitely, 100% NOT Japanese knotweed

  • Oh thankyou all so much, I was dreading this preventing me sell my house. I had an old garden shed removed and the 'Philadelphus' just came to life.
