Good morning all

RB - hope grand-daughter makes a quick recovery - you're right, things are so different nowadays, they go in, snip and out again,  none of that fudging around messing bits around stuff so the risk of adhesions etc is less - well, that's my impression of when DIL had hers done - if I'm wrong I'm sure Pdoc will correct me - if his head's not too full of wonderful food and even more wonderful gardens. 

As for Dan Pearson's 'garden', I had a ponder on that too, and I decided that because he'd made it, it is a garden - if it had just happened it wouldn't have been - except if it had just happened 'in a  garden' and it had been allowed/edited - then it would also have been a garden.

Purples and oranges!!!  They saw my new front border last summer!!!!!!!

Weird one for me - help needed

How interesting!  Have you potted them up?  You could run a sweepstake!

My guess is Crocosmia

Crows will rob bird's eggs and fledglings - maybe the  blackbird had been defending its nest?

9cm plant - how to deal with it

I will agree that it's not good value - I'd keep potting that on for a couple of years before planting it out.

I'd go with prunus suckers.  As Nut says, it's what they do.  

Keep mowing the lawn regularly and it'll stop any new ones from getting to any sort of size.
