                I'm guessing that is on the cliffs at Dover.
                I can remember roaming around there in the late 70s early 80s before the NT took over the place, no restaurant, just an ice cream van in those days.:smile:
                I also remember seeing these cabbages growing around the gun emplacements, I used to think they were just remnants from WW2, where soldiers had perhaps grown a few veg.

                Never occurred to me they might be native wild plants.

                  Yep, Dover :)

                  Native to both sides of the channel coasts, ancestor of most cabbages, broccoli, sprouts etc.

                  Much more rubbery leaves than cultivated cabbages, I made Tetters have a good feel :snorky:

                      This only just qualifies for this thread. The photo is in my garden but I was out walking in it :heehee:. Also, they are wildflowers but have set up home in the garden.

                      The Bee Orchid leaves are showing but the flowers don't bloom until June. I have to hope that the rabbits don't eat them as they seem to have a taste for them.

                          We now have Milk Thistles growing locally, that turned up in some imported topsoil. I've read suggestions about adding them to homebrew to mitigate any adverse effects of alcohol :dbgrtmb:The Supplement You Should Absolutely Consider Before a Night Out

                          Wonder if the rude filter will overide the botanical name?
