That's my plan for a similar area, Verdun, except that I'm not even going to attempt to dig it over yet, just smother it in good stuff!

Yes, Hemerocallis for the top one.

It does root as it goes, I've had some huge clumps that have rooted along the stems. I wouldn't expect young plants from last year to have done this yet, though. I would give pegging down a try using your long stems.

Who knows these plants / trees?

Top photo, right, looks like a Eucalyptus. Middle photo could be Prunus laurocerasus, with a Mahonia to the right. Bottom photo is too blurry.

I got one last year, it's flowering now - still in its pot as I haven't found the perfect spot for it yet.

They look like gone-over snowdrops to me.

Help identifying weeds

The middle one might be Geum urbanum, Wood Avens. It's a common rosette-forming garden weed with small yellow flowers.

Wow, those are expensive! Think I'll go for something a bit cheaper!

Lidl and Aldi have been selling what looks like the identical items, only cheaper. I tried one out last year - the one with the crocosmia and iris. The irises grew and flowered, only one was blue instead of white, and the crocosmia only produced a few leaves and no flowers. It was a bit dismal! I'll stick to planting my own combinations in future.

Thanks for the info about the service. I'd like to have a go myself first, just not sure how to de-rust. They are actually too big for my hand so probably wouldn't use them myself.
