Glad you enjoyed the tour.

What spare time?

Not to worry. We have about 20 different Geums, including the ones you mention and as soon as I can arrange a visit to a Garden Centre/Nursery specialising in them I will have a few more too!

Generally speaking, yes, they do need planting deeply. And burying the new young growth will do it no harm.  Just be careful not to damage the new shoots when backfilling the hole.

If you want a longer flowering, spectacular one then look out for G. Blazing Sunset. Buds are yellow, then open to yellow and red and finally go red and it flowers on and off all Summer.

does anyone know what this is?

It is an Arisaema of some sort.

Ours flower from about the middle of May until the middle of June in a normal season. The ones in shade last a bit longer than the ones in full sun. I leave the heads on as they are quite decorative, but then you do get self seeded ones around and they are not always as good as the original, but still nice.

If you do cut out the old flowering stems, then you may get another flush of flowers later on in the season.

What's this?

The flowers are tiny things nestled right down in the green bracts at the top of the stems.

Can anyone identify this tree please?

Looks like one of the many Willows.

Cox's also need a lot more heat than other apples and this year has been a disadster for them.
