New garden and new to gardening, is this a fox glove? Will have to render this wall soon. Cheers.

    Nice one thank you. Shame to have to get rid of it, didn't think they would grow in a wall.

    They’ll grow anywhere their seeds land if they get sun and rain ... you can see them sprinting out rock crevices on the Dartmoor tors; they’re biennial so die after flowering and setting seed so you’re not losing a plant when you pull it out and repair the hole in the wall before rendering. 👍

    You'd be surprised at what grows out of cracks in walls.... :D
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
