POPPY is Papaver rhoeas, common red corn poppy.
Hot all day. Too hot for digging holes, but I did manage to get the banana planted.
Sweet alyssum, poppy, cornflower. Not what I call weeds.
Viburnum opulus snowball Bush.
A thistle. It could be a scotch thistle...Onopordum acanthium, but I would like a side view as well and height.
Nuts got the Crystal ball.
You cut the old leaves off in spring to showcase the flowers. You will currently have this year's leaves and the flower stalks. Cut the flower stalks back to the base. Leave all the leaves on unless they are diseased, they will build the plant up to give a good flower display next year. If you give them a liquid feed every now and then during the summer, that will help too. A teaspoon of phostrogen in a watering can of water once a fortnight will do.
Does pampas grass ring a bell.? Nasty sharp stuff that you need gloves to get it out?
B3, what sort of shape do you want?
Singles, doubles, pom poms, Barlow shape, long spurred, short spurred, stellata?
Then choose what colour you want. I'll see what I can do. Oh I have some golden leaved varieties too.
I agree with Andy. Lollipopping it does not work for most shrubs. Thin out old wood to the base. If the plants are too big, scrap them and start again with something more suitable to the space.
The jasmine will probably need a good watering. Treat that planter as if it is a big pot. It may get too dry.
