I have just found a pot at the back of my shed that I'd forgotten about.  Could somebody confirm that the red stemmed plant isn't JKW, it isn't anywhere else in the garden but I back onto woodland and have no idea what in there.

    No it isn't.
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    Looks a bit like beech leaves, take it out off the pot to see the roots and stem and if the stem is woody, all will be well.
  • @Braidman - like this ?
    The root is 13" long while the stem and leaves are only 9"
    It is woody as well.
  • You can is definitely not JKW...see pics below.
    Nor is it Fagus sylvatica...Beech.

    At least panic over, better to be safe than sorry!
