Its looking good here - so a day of weeding is planned!  Told you that i'd be one of the last to stir .....   Although not THE last this morning

Slug pellets

I've been using the slug gone/sheeps wool pellets - they seem to work on hostas and clematis - but they don't go very far

Need help identifying a few plants

Hi Sara - 2 looks like a mahonia and 3 are hellebore leaves - both work keeping, although you will have to wait til next winter/early spring to see them in their full glory

Not sure what 1 is, but looks cultivated (ie not a weed) so worth keeping for a year to see what it does to earn its keep.

Good luck with your new garden .....exciting times

Glad you have all enjoyed your evenings

Pink ones are papavers - oriental poppies - they take a few years to get going in my patch (by which time i have lost the label - but think this one is MrsP?!?*#??) but then they are here to stay.  Like so many things in the garden, patience eventually pays off .... Wish i had more of it 

Clematis (again!) Help?

Very pretty Sara - my first stop when trying to identify clematis is the Taylors site - search by Group 2 pruning to narrow it down a bit
