Hi, can someone identify this plant for me please? And tell me if it will eventually produce some sort of flower?
I'm a gardening novice but it just looks like a bramble- type plant to me. So I could just pluck it out of the ground and plant something else in its place.
Many thanks.

I find these in my garden but they can become a nuisance think birds must drop the fruits so they grow, they can be hard to get out! So unless you want brambles I'd get rid I'm afraid.

And the roots have growth points on them so you need to remove all of the root as well or it will regrow from below ground.

And also if you allow any of the shoots to touch the ground they will root at the tip, and start another plant growing, Derek.

Thanks everyone. I pulled it out of the ground this afternoon. I think I got all of it out, I'll keep an eye out in the next few weeks just to make sure.
