Prunus Amanogawa

Although it's columnar in shape, it will still get pretty big. It will stand being in a big pot for a year or two, but then I would get it in the ground.

what on earth is this chive smelling plant, we have found it on the lawn??

The best multi purpose compost this year

I think I would mark it with a stick and relocate it when it dies down.

I have a number of double like golden ducat but they get top heavy anf fall over when it rains. I'm drifting towards orchid flowered (split corona) and miniatures to dot around.

Daffs usually double up each year. That looks like a double daff like this

http://qualitydaffodils.com/daffodils-by-colour/all-yellow-daffodils/heamoor-4y-yem-per-pack-of-3-bulbs

or it could be a natural sport. Did someone plant a bag of mixed daffs there?

What are these?

1st one looks like seed head of snowdrops.

2nd one looks like paeony shoots.

Rhododendrons and azaleas die in my soil. I have a camellia. Ever year it forms nice fat buds.... and then the squirrel eats them. Its between a Magnolia soulangeana "Dawn"  and a Magnolia grandiflora "Exmouth". Its currently obstructing my view(from the living room) of the old hellebore bed. I think its going to get a major chop soon. I think the phlomis fruticosa is for the chop too. Its never really done well where it is. too much shade and not good enough soil. A cutting i gave a friend grew to three times the size of the parent plant in two years, and always looks a lot better.

I'm off to do a bit of shopping now.

Best buy books!

Beth Chattos series of books are good to study for what to plant in dry area, or damp areas, etc. Also I love anything by Christopher Lloyd.
