I was thinking salt leeching into the soil at some point.

Another identification required, saw this out on a walk on saturday

Get you at playtime David, I like mine.

Can't wait!

Yes, nice little flowers for a few days in spring, then it looks rubbish for the rest of the year....and oh. so invasive.

Perhaps worth noting that salt kills plants too.

How sad David  

For sure! I read it in an article by Gay Search, not long after Arthur had died.

I've not visited since Arthur B emigrated to New Zealand, Forester, but I think it's probably part of a bye-pass of Ombersley.....deffo a road.

SP - Presuming this is directed to me.

No reason at all (if they have been hardened-off) why they can't be planted out now. As I've said many times previously, they don't care for cold winds....so maybe fleece them until they get established.

Push a few twiggy bits into the soil around them for support...of course, they'll need something more substantial later.

Not sure if I should go on about this (it isn't all that relevant to the topic).....anyway, Arthur Billitt was an agri-chemist with Boots before moving to Clack's Farm. He bought the farm for his daughter to set-up a poultry business....sadly the business was wiped out by fowl pest....this is when he turned it into the GW TV garden.

Sadly, the whole lot is now buried under tons of tarmac.
