Wisteria to bloom

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?

Thanks

five plants id friend or foes?

The 2nd one is creeping buttercup, very invasive weed, I'd get rid of that.

Hollyhock seedlings stopped growing

Sorry LenaN, just seen your reply. Yes I would have thought it would be ok, it might start growing faster. It is small so a sheltered spot away from the worst of the rain and wind until it gets bigger and stronger. Just watch out for slugs and snails
