I agree with Nut.

I think you have white alysum (little dorrit), and possibly nigella. There seems to be part of an opium poppy leaf in the top right hand corner.  Let them grow, but they probably need thinning a bit.

A primula.  The collar of leaves around the flower makes it more likely to be one of the sports of Primula vulgaris  such as Kerbelmilk


The old name for this type was Jack in the green.

Why won't my wisteria flower

Beautiful wisteria , Doghouse riley.


Are they all grafted, or do you have any on their own roots.? I took a layer off of mine. It tends to flower better than the grafted one.

Mary, what sort of dahlias are they? The dwarf ones used for bedding start to flower quite early on. Dead heading is all they need. The larger sort need pinching and some disbudding of secondary buds to make good heads.

Blackcurrant harvesting

Where are you?. i generally reckon here in the Midlands,  I pick blackcurrants mid July. They are then sweet enough to eat raw. You may need to net them to keep the blackbirds off.
