Sounds like Stachys sylvatica, Hedge Woundwort, to me.

Definitely a Juniper, there are a few similar cultivars.

Help needed!

I don't use the weather thing either, I have other apps for that. I don't normally have any problems with the site. 

I'd like something that lets you go to the next post without having to jump back to Latest Posts, preferably sited at the bottom of the screen.

I can honestly say that I have never seen a butterfly or caterpillar on a nettle, although I know they are supposed to be food plants for invertebrates. I have looked quite hard but no luck yet!

How special we are to share our planet with plants!

The pale blue one (photo 4) is a flax, Linum. The last one is Crimson Clover, Trifolium incarnartum. The second photo looks more like a Candytuft but not sure. I think 3 and 5 are some kind of cornflower.

Weed with black pods

Don't worry, it's an annual so you just need to pull it out. It will be back next year, yank it out when you see the flowers so that it can't seed everywhere. No need for weedkiller.

Only if you eat them. Very young children must be supervised in the garden, older ones can be taught not to put things in their mouths unless they know it's edible.

wild strawberries

Wild strawberries don't need any special nurturing, they often grow in thin poor soil in the wild. I suspect the dry conditions this year might affect the taste. However, all the ones I have popped into my mouth on country walks have been yummy!

Wisteria.......... again

Bolusanthus speciosus - it's beautiful. Usually used for bonsai, I'm not sure it's hardy outdoors in the UK.

can they live in pots?

I've found that Digitalis doesn't do at all well in pots, I'd put that one in the ground. As it's a biennial it will die next year anyway.
