I can't think of any reason why you shouldn't use the two in the same area.

ID of plant growing EVERYWHERE!

Definitely rosebay willowherb. Quite attractive spires of pinky purple flowers in late summer, but a real nuisance if you ever let it seed. Worth digging up when you spot it because it's quite large and will squash other plants.

It'll be fine. Trim the cherry in June/July when it is dry and sunny; the cotoneaster can be done at any time.

Not a lot at the moment other than remove the affected leaves. You can spray with Bordeaux mixture just before leaf fall, again in mid January and February.

What's the weather like in your area?

Rained heavily overnight so everywhere is soaked - now just cool and overcast. But we are supposed to reach the dizzy heights of 20C on Tuesday on current predictions

Rough Marigold?

It certainly looks like it - will be interesting to see what it turns into!

daffodil bulbs,can i plant now?

Plant them as soon as you can, with twice the bulb's height of soil above them, and the leaves on the surface. Water them in well, and give them some liquid tomato food at the same time. Let the leaves die down naturally - don't cut or tie them - and remove them when they've gone brown, making sure that you fill the small hole left when you remove the leaf (leaving a hole will allow narcissus fly to get in and kill the bulb).

They should come up for you next year - mark their spot so you don't dig them up by accident.

I can't see any reason why they shouldn't grow provided that you planted them at the right depth. Just leave them be - they'll come up in their own time.
