I let it form seed because it doesn't last long as a plant. In later years the seedlings take over.
Have a look at Thalictrum delavayi and see if that matches if you can't load a photo.
Crinum x powellii alba
Yes, I'd say a violet. I'm trying to establish them in a shady patch by the hedge. I have a dark leaved purple one and a white one.
I have grown phacelia tanacetifolia. I did not dig it in though. I let it flower and the bees thought it was great. I then ripped it out and put it on the compost heap.
Try the organic gardening catalogue for supplies. Much cheaper than little seed packets.
Brambles in the garden I cut back. There are enough trying to take over from next door. They fight back and I usually get scratches from them.
Thick leather gauntlets and a pair of loppers required. Otherwise in 2 years you won't have a garden at all, just a bramble patch.
If you have foxes, you don't get rats.
I prefer the foxes, and the cubs playing on the lawn are so cute.
If you want lots of wildlife, you have to be a bit untidy, to give them undisturbed areas.
My Allium christophii self seeded under the wisteria. There are now hundreds of the things because I do little weeding there. I must get in and move some to a better position.
Container grown as opposed to containerised (as wg wb found) are a lot more expensive than bare root. If you buy from a garden centre in a pot, tip it out to see if its just a bare root packed in peat.
Mail order, I would order bare roots now for delivery November, and meanwhile start to prepare the planting holes.
My Peony seeds germinated after I had chucked them out after 2 years. I have a place where I tip all seed trays where the seed has not germinated after 2 seasons. It's surprising what comes up in it. You have to have an idea of what the first true leaves look like though.
Do ame as nut says, and give it another season.
