Not sure that it is an Escallonia, the leaves look wrong. It could be a fuschia

what is this plant?

It could be a Sun Spurge, Euphorbia helioscopia

I think it is Cyperus eragrotis, Umbrella Sedge.  It self seeds and will spread like mad, I now deadhead mine to keep it under control.

I've noticed this year that very few of my runner bean flowers are setting.  There is very little evidence of bees or hoverflies this year.  Is there anything I can do to improve the set rate apart from getting a bee hive?

Is This Honey Fungus?

I don't think it is, too early in the year for honey fungus to appear.  They are too pale.  Honey fungus has a collar on the stem on the underside which is a creamy white.

I would suggest that it is an Allium but not sure which one

Tomato trouble

They could be hungry.  Outside plants need feeding and watering just like ones in greenhouses.

Bug ID!

I don't think those are vine weevil eggs as they are laid in the soil.  They look more like caterpillar eggs.  You can get a treatment for vine weevil that you water the pots with, it's active against the larva.  There are several brands available so you now have an excuse to visit the garden centre
