This hedgerow is mainly Hawthorn and Silver Birch along some of its length, then Rose (a garden variety). Also present are Elder, Gorse, Holly, Larch and some large Willow trees.
The ground plants are made up of Bramble, Wood Avens, White Clover, grasses, Cuckooflower, variegated Deadnettle, Rosebay Willowherb, mosses, Cleavers and Broad-leaved Dock with a few plants of Hairy Bittercress and Garlic Mustard. Garlic Mustard is also known as Jack-by –the-Hedge. It has white flowers in spring, which are an important food source for butterflies, just as they come out of hibernation. The leaves can be eaten by humans, although they’re quite bitter, and don’t taste much like garlic or mustard! They do have a slight onion flavour though!
