Are you bringing them back in soil with roots, or as cuttings? Cuttings need to be shaded until they have formed roots. Bringing in plants in soil could bring all sorts of diseases into the country.

Plant identification please

The builders bags that are approx 1 m cube hold a tonne of gravel etc. I would consider 4 cubic metres to be 4 tonnes.

I bought one last year in Lidl. I repotted it and it went crackers.  It spent the winter in my mums conservatory, then got chopped, and is currently on a 4 ft pyramid. Not bad for 4.99

Can anyone tell me what this plant is?

Looks like Datura stramonium aka Jimson weed or thornapple or even Devils trumpet.

 The seeds are highly poisonous.

Plant identification No. 2 please
