Bought at a plant sale a few weeks ago and have forgotten what it is. blushThink flowerbed plant rather than veg! Any ideas please? Tia

The leaf facing the camera is probably a seed leaf and looks a bit of a weird shape, but I'd guess at courgette.

Is it Black-eyed Susan (Thunbergia), climber with orange flowers?

Could possibly be nasturtium as well?

HerbWoman Tue 24-May-16 18:02:27

Sorry - I misread (phone screen zipping about) and thought you said veg!

LIZS Tue 24-May-16 18:19:08

My recollection was that it could grow tall so poppy may be right!

I would guess morning glory.

Another vote for Morning glory - after planting some a few years ago, I get seedlings pop up every summer, and very welcome they are too!

Lizs, can you turn the plant around the photo it again please

Gatekeeper Wed 25-May-16 17:00:44

scrap that. Just had a look at my Morning glory- the seed leaves look like yours and then on they resemble a heart shape so can vote on Morning Glory as well

LIZS Wed 25-May-16 17:04:52

Any better?

Gatekeeper Wed 25-May-16 17:26:38

def morning glory

the name they give to old blokes morning erection grin

Haha, is it the same as bindweed? We have an ongoing battle with that in another bed.

Gatekeeper Wed 25-May-16 17:31:31

its in the same family but this one dies off with frosts etc whereas the bindweed bugger manages sub zero/ice age temperatures!!

It is easy enough to keep under control in our frost prone climate, however I recommended it to my sister who lives in California and apparently it is a vile weed round there, prone to climbing up to the roof edges and lifting off tiles!

Looks more like a vegetable to me- cucumber of other sort of squash.
