Thanks Fairy - now we can tell Wonky
The plant with the wider leaves looks as if it could be an echinacea.
The rest is willowherb - a weed which seeds and spreads - pull it up ... gently ... and your echinacea will have a much better chance.
Yes Hazel, it's the first one.
Wonky has some of the second one - I was looking at hers yesterday and wondering whether it's a Carex?
BCD - I'm planning to keep mine in check with the strimmer, if the need arises
B3 - you have a PM

B3 Thanks I'll send you a PM
Fine drizzle here in Norfolk - have come in for some lunch - may well not get back outside today now ...
Have noticed that my big sage plant is on the way out - the herb bed gets run off from the terrace when we get a downpour and it's pretty soggy the end where the sage is - but the mind needs digging up and dividing so I'll move the mint to the soggy end (in it's big pots sunk into the ground) and put the replacement sage cuttings which I took earlier this year, in the end near the grapevine. But it doesn't look as if it'll happen today ...
That's the one B3 It would be great if you could spare some

Plan is for it to be the other side where the tree is no more ... the 'stump' is faux .... a big chunk/log of the felled one, placed carefully at the edge of the sunny bed for aesthetic purposes (and to allow it to rot down for the bugs and beetles).
Sawfly caterpillars - pick the little bu$$ers off - finger and thumb job
Are they here yet Flumps?
Got seabass from Lidl for supper - ready to cook - just bung it in - with new potatoes and spinach it'll only take OH moments to cook it if Andy's still spinning it out .....................
What about that Log Cabin party we had at Pdoc's ... we could have another one and keep the NDN up all night ............. if we don't all fall asleep on the sofa first
