A mystery/wild section of the front garden

Thanks so much. What we're going to do is clear the area, keeping the hawthorn & rowan tree (not pictured) and plant with climbers and evergreen shrubs. Rosa rugosa & mahonia x charity seem suitable from the guides. We also have some honesty seedlings growing in the greenhouse and a patch of daffodils then bluebells which we left alone sprung up amongst the scrub this year. Maybe keep a bit of the snowberry.

Otherwise the plan is a little wild but much more managed.

Thanks for your IDs - it's been invaluable and as novices we have the confidence to go ahead and remove much of it.

Any suggestions for evergreen/semi-evergreen climbers much appreciated.

That's very helpful - thank you. Starting to build up a picture of what's there now.

Thanks - yes it did have white berries on it in the winter. That's really helpful

Thanks for the responses - I will post some more detail of the particularly concerning plants. Is the tall tree an elder?

Hi there,

We're working on our front garden, inherited last year. One section along the neighbour's fence is particularly wild. We cut a lot back last year but it's sprouted again. There's a hawthorn & rowan tree in one corner which seem to be worth keeping and attract the birds. 

We don't know what the other plants are, if there's anything worth keeping or what to plant if we attempt complete removal. The fence faces north and we would prefer to see plants there. It's also a windy spot and we have very alkaline soil. 

Any advice or plant or weed identification would be really very much appreciated. 

Thanks in advance. 

Moira

Hi there,

Spotted this beautiful plant (some form of rambling rose maybe?) but no idea what it is.

Can any of you kind experts help?

Many thanks,

Moira
