Hi folks,

I've got a plant growing by my fence and can't remember if I planted it or it's found it's own way there. Any ideas what it is?

    Looks like Acanthus mollis. It wanders and seeds around

    Snap Nutcutlet.................lovely in the right place but a b****r to get rid of.......it certainly has some roots........I moved mine from a completely unsuitable place ( never flowered ).  Now I have it in a suitable place where it flowers well..........and still in an unsuitable place where it doesn'timage

  • Thanks for the ID. I don't remember planting one so it might have come from next door - just nature doing its thing I guess. It's not a problem where it is so I might as well let it be.
