Very glossy heart shaped leaves. Tiny greenish yellow insignificant flowers.

any ideas please? Apologies for poor photo - had to untangle it from shrubs to take the photograph!

    I think it is black bindweed,   Fallopia convolvulus

    I think you're right!

    thank you

    Time to get painting it with weed killer (along with all the much prettier bindweed in the garden!!)

    Look like Black Bryony to me.  Bindweed has large trumpet shaped flowers.

    Edit: Actually, I'll take that back as the stems aren't right and black bindweed does indeed also have small insignificant flowers. image

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