Sorry FB but it really is even more than gorgeous! I should be in work too so sorry for rubbing it in.

What are these I potted up?

Hmmm, I labelled one pot per group or so I thought. Doesn't help when I move the pots around and some die anyway. I did label lots of plants in the garden but those have all vanished! There's another unidentified cluster in a pot, straight grass like thing, must be a bulb but not flowered. I'll just wait for that one to surprise me as it's ok where it is.

Thanks Adam, I think you've got it, spiraea sounds familiar and have put the other one next to philadelphus and is definitely the same!

Phew. Thanks everyone.

Lovely Fairy, it's on the list.

money or ratbags Lily? Unfortunately they do seem to stick together don't they? 

Kef - sure last time I looked the dicentra was almost invisible and now it's quite a bush with flower buds - sneaky! Might take lavender stoeches (didn't look up spelling, sorry) out of GH today.

Help!! Can anyone I.D this plant?

Mines also a vote for osteospermum, especially if the foliage has a strong smell.

Phlox thank you

No duetzia or cornus.

Have philadelphus but don't remember taking a cutting, will be nice if I did.

Vebena bon yes, but others are much bigger, think this was one of the mollycoddled ones.

one left - the long one with green stem, it's on the tip of my tongue - might begin with s or v. late ish flowering, about 60cm tall, pink or blue spikes of flowers, aghhh I'm sure it is, can't even find a photo from last year.
