That is a yucca flower - think I can just see it's leaves peeping up in the bottom right hand corner

Re the orchid - just leave it as it is - do not use any fertiliser or sprays around it - 

 

Report it to your local Wildlife Trust http://www.wildlifetrusts.org/  they keep records of such things

Think the first one is a Pyramidal Orchid - a rare and wonderful thing and if you've got one of those in your garden you're a very fortunate Percy

Second is one of the currants - it should've flowered by now - any fruits to be seen?

 

Third is one of the hardy geraniums - there are several blue ones - it's not Rozanne, that has a white eye.

When did you plant it?

Ideas to assist an amatuer gardner

I'm not in your area I'm afraid, but you could try asking at your local nursery or garden centre - they may know of reputable people who would give you a quote. 

Or try asking at the nearest college to you that does horticultural courses - some of their recent college leavers may have started up their own businesses.

Good luck 

Can anyone identify this growth/ bacteria

What's HT Dove (Hybrid Tea?) if so, then I think it is.  I need to see what colour it is when the flower opens and I'll know what it's called.

Yes, Hybrid Tea - sorry
