This is a thread for YOU to share what plants you have!
I'm fairly sure that you are in the UK, TheCuteOrpington.
These are some vegetable plants I have every year here in the Wild West of North America that I initially thought were vegetables of the British Isles. Or, that they were surely best grown in someplace OTHER than where weeks and weeks pass with no rain, humidity levels fall below 20% most every summer afternoon, and daily temperature swings more than 30 degrees Fahrenheit between a morning low and afternoon high:
Leeks and Celery Root (Celeriac)
I've had both for over 10 years. They Do Okay. They take the full season in the garden and aren't huge when I harvest them, although They Do Okay.
It's CommunityAllotment from the UK. @Hattie the Hen was from the UK. I remember that she had a special interest in two vegetables most gardeners don't even want to grow: Nettle and Salsify.
Nettle is around but not close. Salsify is around my garden. I've never harvested it's roots. They don't look all that useable when I have pulled it. Dandelions show up. My little backyard flocks will happily eat the entire dandelion plant if I put it in a plastic bag and microwave it for a minute.
What plants are you interested in. Ornamental, shrubs, trees, vegetables, lawngrass ... ha! You can be sure that it's terribly important to some people.
