No. 2 is a creeping buttercup. I agree with Nut about the anemone in the first pic.

Dahlia bulbs and tubers

Dahlias aren't usually hardy so many people lift them every year and store in a frost-free place. This would disturb your bulbs, so probably not the best situation for them.

what is...

Mine has trellis on 2 sides (the visible ones) and there's winter jasmine, honeysuckle and variegated ivy growing up it. It's completely hidden, the oil man has to ask if he hasn't been before! I do have to keep the top clear, the ivy has a habit of growing over the filling hatch so it gets a haircut twice a year. I cut back the winter jasmine after flowering.

The second one is red dead nettle, Lamium purpureum, and the third is bramble, Rubus fruticosus. I'm not sure about the first pic, I thought it was groundsel from the small photo but it clearly isn't on enlargement.

Yes, agree with arabis.

Who ate the lupins???

Thanks all, I think it was the mice. Absolutely no sign of slugs or snails, I've had a good look in the pots.

Holly hedge from cuttings

I used to find hundreds of holly seedlings near my mature female holly, I think these would be easier to use for a hedge - assuming you have an obliging tree nearby.

I-D please.

Your plant with purple flowers and whorls of leaves might be purple toadflax, Linaria purpurea. The pink version is variety 'Canon Went'.

I've moved the pots into the greenhouse with some slug pellets and a couple of mouse traps. Hopefully the plants will recover.

Who ate the lupins???

Couldn't find any slugs or snails to blame, no slime in evidence. Rabbits eat lots of stuff in my garden, but I don't think they would jump into the coldframe. Deer, possibly?
