Invasive Plant taking over bed (and lawn)
I've recently moved to a new house and have focussed my attention on the front garden up to now. This weekend I started to look at the back garden. I've decided to leave it as is for the most part so I can see what plants come through throughout spring and summer so I can decide what to keep.
However I noticed that a plant seems to be invading one bed so I think I need to do something about it. I can see that next door have this plant in a walled bed so assume it has seeded in my garden from that. It has surrounded my japonica and another variegated shrub but is also taking root in the lawn! Here is a picture of the plant and a close up of the leaf.
Does anyone know what this is? I fear Japanese Knotweed!
