just had a look, monthly open days through the summer now. It was open daily in the past

Visiting Woottens?

Posted: 27/07/2016 at 14:15

West Acre gardens and nursery is really great. I have a lot of their plants.

I thought Woottens was open to the public though I've never been and maybe confusing it with somewhere else

Is this a virginia creeper blooming?

should have a rough feel to the leaves and very tough stems

Wall of spikes!

both suggestions are vicious, as is hawthorn

I wouldn't go for bramble, the old stems need cutting out and the new stems smack you in the face.

Crambe grandiflora

I've never heard of C. grandiflora and google finds few references to a red list plant in the Ulkraine.

Are you sure it's not C. cordifolia or maritima?

Both of these die right back in winter. I had several non-flowering years with C. cordifolia and eventually dumped it. Or thought I'd dumped it, I can see the leaves peeping out between some alliums now.

not available to me clattnow,  privacy settings I should think. I don't recognise the little bit in the photo

unknown tree

the shape of the tree as a whole plant, more leaves showing how they're arranged on a branch, buds

clattnow, I read books, I can't watch films made from them

The Day of the Triffids was good when I first read it (don't ask how long ago) but seems very dated now.

I look forward to meeting your triffid

white cornflowers, yes, that's OK.

Triffid? can it walk? I've never seen the film but I read the book many years ago.

Would need a photo for that one

What plant is this?

a little invasive is a bit of an understatement

pretty though if you have the space for it.
