More plant ID's please!


discovered a couple more things lurking under brambles. What are they, please?

1) quite low, poking out from under brambles at about 1ft high (but might want to be higher/bigger)


2) Just a single branch poking out from a bramble patch. This has spikes about 1cm long on the stems, and quite leathery leaves

    Second one is a gooseberry. Watch out for babies nearby.image

  • image Waterbutts! Will be very careful when clearing that area in case I find any babies!

    But seriously, definitely looks like I'll have to be careful when sorting that corner then - it's just to the left of the tayberry I discovered so was obviously originally planned to be a "fruit corner" (perhaps I'll find a yoghurt plant too? image)

    Any thoughts on plant 1, anyone?

    First one could be Choisya if it is should have strong orangey smell if you crush a leaf.

    I don't think the leaf arrangement is right for a choisya. But I haven't got a better suggestion. But might be an acid lover

    1 looks a bit like a Pieris.

    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
