    I knew I was going to see wild rhubarb, but I had no idea it would look like that. It came across as rather unusual.

    The answer is Tatton Park in Cheshire, not so far from Warrington.

    I am retired John :like: however, the only schooling I ever actually had was floriculture and horticulture, three year course, had to memorise 50 Latin names each week in the last year as part of our plant-indent test on Fridays, I always had an interest in plants :) Kew is very close, I get in a few times a year.

    The family used to go there when I was a kid.
    I just remember how picturesque it was and that flowers were everywhere.
