New garden - plant ID

Going right back to 12 it's one of the hardy osteospermums, daisy like flowers in summer. 15 is skimmia japonica. 19 is spirea probably gold flame 21 is elder. Can't remember 19 but it's a pain in my garden a weed in my book seeds readily usually found in damp watery conditions like ponds, lakes.  22 I think is a campanula. 3 could be one of the eryngiums.

It does work Jason. Very effective and relatively cheap considering the other options.

too late to get eremurus flowers?

They won't flower this year. It takes a year to establish at least and that's if conditions are perfect.

Peanuts alkanet is growing quickly right now there's no need to wait if you leave it a few weeks it will be setting seed and letting them go. I started on alkanet about a month ago it's already blooming in the lanes around me and some of the gardens I work in.

Squwelchy, most veg are easy to grow, start off with what you like to eat, salad type veg are very easy, the cabbage family germinate readily as do some root veg. Best thing you can do to help yourself is get a simple book the Expert series by D.G Hessayon are a good start. Simple and explained well.

Tartan I've never sown these particular seeds but have sown echninacea on several occasions. I've never stratified them, however all I do if some seeds need it is pop them in the bottom of the fridge for a week or so.

Well nut they're easy peasy to propagate so why not.

I've reduced them to 6 inches in the past and they come back. I've seen others take them even lower and they don't seem to mind. If they like their conditions they thrive on a bit of butchery.
