We have used home and away for the last two years, renting a property in Hampshire. It worked out very well, four adults ( of a certain age ) and three dogs with the owners permission it was a very good Holiday.

Never used the company you are asking about but something in the back of my mind says I read something not long ago of a persons accommodation being trashed by a letting.

Can anyone identify this plant?

I thought evening primrose but I'm not sure the leaves look quite right for this, you might have to wait to see if it flowers.

I would say nandina domestica as well, very tough plant, foliage good to put with cut flowers.

I've got this one and also nandina firepower which as its name suggests turns a more vibrant red in autumn than domestica, it's also grows a lot shorter.

It doesn't bear flowers so is usually grown for its lovely leaf colour in the autumn. 

Plant ID please

I've just looked up on google the leaf shape for the hollyhock and your picture doesn't look the same, 

In the google picture the leaf is darker green and shiny and has deeper serration.

I wondered if it is some kind of hogweed.

sorry don't know your other plant

Thank you so much Ladybird, I've looked up wood sage and I think that's right, as I hadn't had any replies I thought it was going to remain a mystery it's a lovely plant so I might see if I can propagate some.

Thanks once again 🤗

ID please
