Good afternoon all,

I have just moved into a house with a garden, the first in 20 years and am new to gardening. We have a vine type plant with clusters attached? It appears to be coming out of a tree, though unsure if part of said tree or a foreign entity from next door creeped over..
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Intersting plant. Can you share with us where in the world this plant is located.

Welcome to the forums.
Well done on really good clear is so very helpful.
I don't think that twisted thick trunk belongs to your plant.

I believe this may be Jasminum beesianum.
Deciduous /semi evergreen. ..depends where in UK you are.
Grooved stem.
Straggling. Scrambling, climber.
Roots forming at nodes.
Leaves simple and opposite.Very short leaf stalk.
This link also shows it with green branches.



Requires support as it will not self-cling.
Height: up to 5 m (16 ft) if left unpruned
Spread: 3 m (10 ft)

It should have pink flowers in mid summer.

Do please add a pic when it flowers.

Thank you silver surfer.. I'll keep you posted on the flowers 😀
Mainly wanted to make sure those clusters aren't a sign of disease etc
I'll now continue to find the source of the vines I tip my hat to you.

I think those clusters are the plant trying to grow roots.
Looks perfectly healthy to me.

I'm wondering if those clusters are galls, see pics in link below. It would help to be sure of the plant ID so as to be able to find out what it is sucsceptible to,

Hi all,
Thought I'd update you as it is currently flowering and the bees are loving it!! This is making us happy as we are trying to encourage them with the right plants and sited a few bee hotels.
As you can see they are little pink flowers. I've uploaded some pics and you can catch some of the 5 bees I've counted flying around it this gorgeous evening
