Another Unknown Plant ...

Oh I forgot to mention I tried looking to the base for new shoots but couldn't see any, however there was fresh new growth along the long growth, wish I had a picture of it

You could always try looking on Gumtree or Freecycle to see if anyone local to you is wanting to get rid of some?

Penstemon & salvia

Prune the Penstemons down to new shoots at the base but don't do it yet, the current growth is protecting it from frosts. I am waiting a few more week's before I do mine.
As for Salvias I reduce them by half in the Autumn and then give them a good cut back in the Spring.

Apologies but I am back with another picture of a plant needing identifying. In the picture below it is the growth which looks like a black tangled mess, it also has a rather strong scent and on close inspection does have some live growth with green spiky leaves that have black edging, from what I can remember.
I'm attempting tidying up the raised bed for someone which it is in so could do with some help on what it is before I do anything else.

P.S. No idea why it is upside down ...

Thanks Edd, I was just unsure as I read it was meant to take about 2-3 weeks which is how long I've had them out so far, they're obviously way behind lol
