Confusion in understanding growing instructions

Posted: Today at 17:11

moist, well -drained soil appears everywhere in instructions and means not a lot as far as I can see. A few lucky people might have something like that. Most of us have clay or too dry, or boggy, or something else difficult

Two IDs please

Flowering now, low growing,  I'd say Geranium x cantabrigiense, the hybrid of G. macrorrhizum with G dalmaticum. Probably the cultivar 'Cambridge'

rather a lot of different berberis to choose from and that's one of them.

A photo of the shape of the bush would help ID which one this is

earth rings around trees

trees don't get buried in woodland, if anything some are sitting on a little mound where the roots have grown and pushed soil away.

I don't like to see trees and shrubs with everything cleared away from around them, it looks unnatural. Maybe they don't grow as fast, so what?

What is the texture of these shoot, hard or soft?

It's not Dracunculus vulgaris but could be some sort of aroid.

If it was bamboo I would expect to find evidence of old stems cut down. Are there are hard stumpy ends around it?
