It's a very big tree, but you can cut it right down every year to keep it smaller, I believe.

Plants needed for heavily shaded area under fir trees

If you look in a coniferous forest, absolutely nothing grows under the trees. You are lucky that you've got a few things growing there already! Perhaps some ferns?

A mower with a battery would get rid of the trailing cable problem. Mine is made by Bosch and is very good.

Life's too short for all this!

You could propagate it by layering (pegging down a stem) then move the young rooted plant next year, or have a go at cuttings. I'm not sure the old plant would move very well, I've never tried.

Good idea Nut, I've been wondering what to do with the one I bought last year. I'm not short of rabbits though!

Arum maculatum.

Can somebody identify this one?

Salsify is a vegetable, it used to be grown in cottage gardens from where it escaped into the wild. It's got a long root a bit like a parsnip, and it's supposed to taste of oysters (never tried it though!).

It's Salsify, Tragopogon porrifolius. It's a relative of the wild plant called Jack-go-to-bed-at-noon.
