I think these are mint

The variegations are quite 'yellow' Phillippa ... I'm not keen on it but am fond of the ordinary one ..when I was a child the crumbly old red brick wall around Ma's rose garden was full of it

There is a variegated lemon balm, Melissa officinalis 'Aurea' .... but that isn't it ... I'm 99.9% certain it's Pineapple mint.  

Two shrubs need a name please

Wonky has asked me to post these photos ... she rescued these a few months ago ... they were dead sticks ... she cut them back, potted them up and now look at them!!! 


But she doesn't know what they are and I'm not brilliant at shrubs so it's up to you lot to name them... I'm posting them for her to give her carpal tunnel a rest

Fairy, MrsGarden said that they're in the ground now ... but from what I can see most of the ground around them is covered by decking ... they won't be getting much water from rain ... I would  give them each a good couple of buckets full of water every day .

We'll have to agree to disagree there Onopordum -  I love the scent of it, bees love the flowers and steeping the leaves in boiling water makes a relaxing drink which can help with sleeplessness ... great with a spoonful of honey 

Is it too late to sow sweet peas for this summer?

Yes ... afraid so.

I agree with Hosta ... the green one is Lemon balm ... the variegated one looks like a mint, but which sort of mint I can't say from here ... there is a variegated Pineapple Mint that looks like that ...

hydrangea flowers not opening

It sounds as if you have a Lacecap Hydrangea ... they look quite different to the mophead  types.  Much more delicate and elegant ...
