certainly not ground elder, not sure about Enchanters Nightshade either. It doesn't look quite like mine.

Have a little dig and see if it has very fine white roots extending in all directions. If it has then it will be Enchanter's Nightshade

I agree Bob, not so bad, more easily swamped by other things, unlike ground elder which does the swamping.

at the other end of Cambridgeshire we had thunder but a tiny amount of rain. I don't know how it all missed us here, and OH on a motorcycle coming back from Cadwell. I've looked at the Met Office radar images, phenomenal showers for many. Might not be too late for us so won't say any more.

lovely, my sort of garden

Mock orange?

It's a Philadelphus, aka mock orange.

Old stems right, leaves and flowers right

Scent right.

It's bit spindly and wavy stemmed which could give an impression of a climber like clematis,

Hattie, just wondered and the sticks are Philadelphus which this is. I'd cut the dead bits off.

you're thinking of Mexican (or something) orange blossom  Philippa.

Mock orange is what some people call Philadelphus, which my mum used to called syringa, which  is lilac.

OK if I stick to the proper names? 

What's this?

I think it's good in a garden, that pic is my garden

Not sure about the cooking, It's obviously related to Tragopogon porrifolius, Salsify, but I've never looked to see what the root is like

Is it regrowth from the base of those dead sticks beside it?
