Help identifying plants.

*sobs*  I think I am more novice than I realised. Thanks to everybody for the information, it's really, really appreciated.

And I've made a note not to buy any plants that aren't labelled in future.

Hi Sotongeoff

Plant 3 is about 10 cms high and the leaves are about 12cms from top of stem to tip of leaf. Incidentally, although the owner of the shop didn't know what the plants were, he assured me they were all outside plants. Apparently he may have been incorrect...

Pam, thank you SO, SO MUCH! Plant 2 duly identified

 I'm a bit concerned that the False Aralia is a "small tree that can grow to six feet in height" and that it is supposed to be houseplant, but I planted it in the garden. It seems happy and has new leaves, but I guess I will have to bring it in for the winter.

Thanks for updating my link figrat!  

I had a feeling that the first one was a Hellebore. I have another two, but it didn't look anything like them, so I wanted to be sure. I should say that the possible Crocosmia is the result of 3 bulbs planted together. I have no idea how they would look seperately.

Please help this novice gardener! I recently bought three plants from a local shop. None of the plants had any indentification, and the shop staff had no idea what they were. I have tried to find out online, and drawn a complete blank. I have posted photographs of each plant with some information about them on Photobucket:

If anyone could let me know what they are, I would be so grateful!

You can put a ring of diatomaceous earth around the plants, or crush up eggshells very finely and use that instead. Another way is to sink a tub of beer into the ground, the slugs fall in and die happy. All of these methods are entirely human and animal safe,and they work perfectly. You just have to remember to reapply the earth or eggshells every time it rains.
