Bump! Sorry Tracey I haven't tried to post one yet but someone should be able to help you. 

Can someone help identify what this "bee" / bug this is?

I have spent ages trawling through sites too. Learnt loads whilst doing it but found nothing that looked anything like it so I too am waiting with bated breath for the verdict

Subtropical plant ideas needed please

Hedichium (ginger lily), Musa Basjoo (hardy banana),  Rodgersia aesculifolia, Aruncus, Zantedeschia aethiopica "Crowborough", Perennial Hibiscus (rose mallow) Eupatorium and last but not least Crinum x powellii. All have exotic looking flowers or big leaves or grow very tall. Most of them I grew in my garden as that was the kind of look I was after  

What type of mushroom / fungus is this ?

Hi  hard to tell at this stage as is still immature but don't think its a poisonous one. Would you be prepared to wait and see if the head flattens out and how much, then repost? Pretty sure it is one of two very edible ones but won't know for sure til mature.

Might also be worth moving it outside for the summer. Give it a bit of fresh air...and the flies will fly away  Check under the leaves re the sticky stuff. May be aphids. Again moving it outside would let the predators get rid of them for you.

WHY DOESN'T MY HONEYSUCKLE FLOWER?

They are pretty similiar to clematis in the conditions they like. A rich fertile soil well mulched and not too dry, as Verdun said, with their feet in the shade and their heads in the sun. Add blood fish and bone in spring to encourage flowers.

No idea but that two pronged bit lower left looks suspiciously like a toe complete with nail! 

A few more "what are these" photos

4 looks like that horrible suckering everywhere spirea and I think the tree paeonia is lutea. The flowers are not as showy as the others but the leaves are much prettier. 1 looks like fern to me too. Nice to see you btw thecatsmother

It's the 7 years I'm having trouble accepting addict. The flower then die bit proved itself true over the last few years with another species

Maybe it was just with those particular ones at the time.

I was on another gardening forum and mine and several others on there all flowered in the same year. Some bamboo expert guy said that that was why. Then a couple of years later it happened to some other people on the forum and they had bought theres all around the same time and it was about 7/10 years with theirs. We were from all over the world not just England so does seem to happen in waves depending on which colony your plant was raised from. I am no bamboo expert by any means I am just going on what happened to mine and theirs. 

What was the other species you mentioned?
