Wild flower meadow

I think you need to deal with the bramble first, nettles will seed for years, you can eliminate the plants you have but not the seeds. Nettle is easily dealt with by mowing. I have loads of nettles but none in mown grass. Ivy is capable of making long low growths below mower blade level so mowing doesn't do for that..


It's dig or chemical whichever way you choose but I wouldn't leave them, especially bramble

I think digging is all you can do. There are no plants that would eradicate bramble and ivy except worse invaders like horsetail and Japanese Knotweed. Bramble and Ivy are easy compared to them.

Column Plum Tree: Will it grow into a bush?

Is this fastigiate growth grafted onto the rootstock? If so it won't bush out any more than a Lombardy poplar would.  

To buy or not to buy ???

yes, do check what they are. The choice varieties don't come cheap, the invasive ones do.
