More correctly they look like the other British native one which is Arum maculatum, rather than the A. italicum.

They have the most number of names of any native plant, mostly based on the Phallic appearenace of the flowers centre.

Cuckoo Pint, Lords and Ladies, Angles and Saxons, Wake Robin, Wake Pintle, Dog's Tausle, Parson in the Pulpit...........I could go on, but why?

Wintersong, this house is a 1900's farm workers cottage. The best thing we could do with it, would be to knock it down and start again.........oh for the money. I wish it was a 'grande maison'. It would be nice to have somewhere where there was a square corner.

Ye famous old Liverwort. Ancient plant and pest! I use my Flame gun on it where it is growing over pavong or stones where there are no other plants.

If you want to collect the seed, remove the whole flowering stems when the first seeds begin to fall and turn them up side down in a bucket and let the seed drop out. Wear gloves to remove the rest, the flowers are VERY prickly.

Another Ident thread :D
