I am currently working on a bit of a weekend project with my grandfather to restore his garden to its former glory. It would be a brilliant help if you could identify any of the plants in the following photos.

Gladioli in the background, charming child, nasturtiums in the foreground in first pic. Gladys are perennial, nastys self seed; may have to pull some up if they get too thuggish, 2nd pic looks like some kind of Dahlia thingy - outside my field of knowledge.

Hello Gerard, agree with artjak.

What a lovely colourful garden, all the old favorites to bring back good memories.

Good luck with the project

Top photo, top left, looks like pink astilbe. Fern-like foliage and pink plumy floweheads, likes a damp shady corner.
