Choose your oak gall from the images

The oak supports an enormous number of other species of life. 

Anybody know what it is yet???

The branches on the right have got flowers, A bit stumpy catkin looking.

It might be one of the creeping willows. 

Looks very aged and interesting

parsnips yes, and beetroot but they're not umbellifers. They're Chenopodiacee. They will go to seed if you're unlucky (bolting)

brassicas, some are already flowers like cauliflower and broccoli. Cabbages will go to flower and seed in the first year

That's Lunday cabbage but they look like that. I tried for cabbage flowers but got those awful things that go in supermarket flower bunches

Carrots are biennials. They grow a long  (or short) root in the first year and if you leave them unharvested they go to seed the next year. They're umbellifers, look a bit like cow parsley on a smaller scale.

If you'd left last year's in the ground they would have done that any time now

You had to have the whole link, love those carved carrot 'flowers'

No choc here either. It has side effects to be avoided. So does red wine.

But fortunately white wine is OK so is real ale

Plant I-D please.

I could do that artjak,bag them up but send the pots to be with them at the other end. I'll see what's left after May 4th. 

Would you be coming down the A47 on your trip, if not I could bring them to you in advance

Nettles aren't that hard to dig up but the seeds keep germinating for years

I think it's something in the mustards/charlock etc family.
