Never good at this as I can never enlarge any pic but surely the first is a Fennel ...bronze by the look of it ?

Could the second one be evening primrose?  First one looks a bit like some wild fennel we had once, only pinker!  So I don't think it is.  I am rubbish at these threads anyway.  The right answer will be along in a minute!!!!

If the sword type leaves are part of the plant I don't think Oenthera........but it looks interesting anyway

I thought that philippa, maybe if Alan has a rub and a sniff he might know, daren't say a taste in case I'm wrong

Don't know the second but a nice looking plant Alan.

Oh yes, I thought they were an iris in the foreground, but if they go with the plant, then not like the primrose at all.  Also wondered about mullein, but that doesn't look right either in terms of leaves.  I give up.  I am rubbish at these threads!!

First one looks like fennel to me. Bronze one - the new growth does have that colouration. No idea about the second. Looks like a Phormium at the front of the plant in second pic BB2.

The first is bronze fennel

I think the third pic is Sisyrinchium striatum

Sunny here too Alan - gorgeous weather   

Lots of watering needed, but hey ho, that's gardening 

12/06/2014 at 19:39

Hi m,atey, i,v joined up and  hidden  hose pipes from the tap all around the garden among the plants all out of sight i just connect and away with the spray gun, im like a big kid with a new toy and so so easy now, even the car might get a wet

Foster some children everyone.  Had the pots at the front not only watered but fed for me this evening!  (It's not slave labour if they volunteer, is it??!!)

12/06/2014 at 19:43

Very ejukayshunal I say!

Dove & BB2, are you sharing Alan4711's wine?  

14/06/2014 at 08:33

Lorraine, you've sussed!  

I've just ordered some Sisyrinchium striatum - I've been wanting some for ages, and they'll be perfect in the new front border 

14/06/2014 at 08:46

They grow really well from seed, in fact I can't stop them self seeding!  And the fennel too. I love plants for free!
