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?

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

Sorry about google images but Tragopogon pratensis doesn't have flat seedheads, they are perfectly round. Just like yours, stems match description as well. This is my photo, just now, not google

Probably Tragopogon pratensis but can't see the stems and leaves.

Plant ID please - are are these beasts?

That's Acanthus spinosus or spinosissima or something suggesting the presence of spines

Planting schemes

I have no idea. I bung 'em in and if the effect doesn't please me they get moved, or in more drastic cases chucked/given away.


At the moment my evil eye has fallen on that Deutzia with the double pink flowers, it stands out like a sore thumb amid more subtle planting.
