My neighbours dont want me to use my land to grow a garden

Be good to see some pictures of your plot Shirley. I wouldn't give in without a fight, don't let them put you off. The idea of fencing and then planting a wildlife hedge is a good one.

That's lovely Invicta, enjoy them together

What is my plant and can it be saved?

I'd give it a good hair cut and get rid of the straggly brown bits. Cut it back to the new fresh growth. They are perennial so should pull through

Looks a bit like penstemons to me. If there's new growth there is hope

Took cuttings for the first time, last year  I'm sort of addicted to it now. Don't know if I need any more but I'm sure they will find a home somewhere

One of my Bowles Mauve, is very bushy and as yet doesn't have any flowering stems. Looks like it would be very propagation material, I seem to remember doing this later this year and maybe used a plastic bag over them.

The cuttings will live in a plastic greenhouse which is doing it's job well, but can get a lot of condensation. Is giving the bags a miss a good idea?
