Can you help me identify this vine?

Posted: 12/03/2016 at 10:32

I don't think it's Russian Vine.

Is this a current UK photo? Are we looking at an evergreen plant?

Is there any more information?, does it flower? can I see thorns there?

Another couple of shots might help

No. Wood and fungus go together

Have you got a toolbar over where you type? 2nd from the right, there is what I'm told is a tree. I thought it was a green wine glass

I start from the tree in the tool bar. You can't upload from a phone, or so I'm told, I've never tried.

Physalis alkekengi / franchetti aka Chinese Lanterns. Not to be confused with the physalis that you buy to eat in the supermarkets. I don't know if you can eat these but I don't.

I think I'd pot these up and nurture them till leaves appear. Maybe soak them for a couple of hours to rehydrate. A dry packet isn't a good place to be if you're a plant

They are hardy and invasive if happy. They creep along by root extension.

Lovely seed pods, little to offer otherwise. I love them.

Seen here trying to overcome a sedum

I've still never seen a live badger. Dead ones too often. There are badgers very close to my garden, measurable in yards not miles. I'm sure they must come into my garden, my over the road neighbour has seen them in his garden.

Marygold, with most perennials you have to wait til the second year, a few flower in the first from an early sowing.

Don't cover the seed, light aids germination. Fresh is always best but I don't think these need a chill to germinate
