I know there is an african violet centre and a garden centre on the opposite side of the road, and the farm shop that does dried flowers, are there any more places to visit Nut?

My brother in law did this and he just put the bark straight on the grass. Its been down for about four years now, it hasn't spread onto the rest of the grass, and grass hasn't grown through the bark. I think he just bought the big bags from b&q, though you can get it delivered by truck and its dumped on your drive and then you barrow it to where you want it.

Nut, have you been to Butters? I go there nearly every time I go to see my father in law. They have bunches of flowers, orchids, houseplants, bulbs and all manor of fruit and veg plants as well as shrubs. And have you been to Baytree?

Used to go regularly with my in laws as they live in Holbeach but since the little people arrived I've not had the chance but I will go in a year or two.

Been there lots of times and I can recommend it for plants you won't find anywhere else at a reasonable price. I'm up near there this weekend but am visiting my father in law, so won't make it this time. Wonder if the fig tree growing round the inside wall will be covered in fruit.

Plant ID

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
