Bottom one is a hosta and a potentilla.

top one , thin stuff may be a broom of some sort, coming through a honeysuckle?

Actually that thin spindly stuff looks like marestail weed. Have you a photo of that on its own?

Depends on whether you like it or not. Its a good space filler.

It will probably help it to settle in, by reducing the transpiration load. (same as removing excess leaves on cuttings). Give it a bucket of water once a week for the next few weeks.

You may lose flowers, but if it has red stems its probably one of those you cut back each year so that the new red stems give winter colour.

Should I interfere with the onion?

Its a Kelsae. It weighed 2Lb 10 oz.

Plant ID, buddleia? One other.

You're right of course, Nut. Striatum is a lot bigger with yellow flowers.  I've had this little blue one, but I seem to have a mental block on the name.

Anthriscus ravenswing is cow parsley with darker stems than normal. I grew it from a packet of seed, but only managed to get one plant. Its setting seed, so I hope for more.

I've got the largest onion left from last year. It has shoots and roots. I'm going to stick it in, let it flower and save the seeds.

Plant ID, please

That was my thought as well. It should flower soon, yellow flowers in the evenings.

1 Not buddleja

2 Sisyrinchium striatum called blue flowered grass but not a grass obviously as it flowers.
