There is a plant in a garden that seems to be a close relative of cleavers/goosegrass/stick willy. Same habit and structure, also sticky, but the leaves are dark green, and almost like a Parthenocissus. At first glance I took it for Butcher's Broom as it was in between small blackthorns under a whitethorn hedge which I wasn't working on, but it's not. I only saw the rambling habit on closer inspection. Unfortunately I have no camera at the moment.

Hi Tippben
how did you fare with the cleavers from this post?
did you root them out or are they back with a vengence this year?
I just got my first batch this august and not a pretty sight. They're currently taking over a gorse hedge...
