Nope - not an ivy.  Are the leaves slightly hairy?  That could be the cause of skin irritation.

Not ornamental rhubarb and definitely not any Gunnera I've ever seen - I know there's a small one, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't look like your plant.

KEF - it wasn't exactly warm!!!  There was a keen north wind - builders needed lots of mugs of hot tea and helpings of rhubarb and custard cake,

In front of Hefty's house there's a Francis E Lester rambling rose     http://www.classicroses.co.uk/products/roses/francis-elester/ 

It's taking it's time to get going, the conditions under that tree aren't brilliant for roses, but this year it's put on quite a bit of new growth - Hefty should get a bit more seclusion when it really gets going

What a pretty thing - and good ground-cover too - it sounds as if it's fairly easy to keep within bounds - but I've no idea what it is 

I have a birthday this year so what are ŷou going to get me?

Definitely euphorbia 

New Camellia - Jupiter

Posted: 25/03/2014 at 17:53

So if there was a larger shrub or a hedge on the eastward side, between the camellia and the rays of the morning sun, it would be ok ..... but otherwise don't put it in an east facing position.  

My parents had a fabulous camellia, which bloomed it's socks off every year, it was on the north side of the house in front of the kitchen window - cheered Pa up when he did the washing up
