Your astilbes are probably cultivars (ie Cultivated Varieties) and would not seed true. This could be an astilbe seedling

Not the same bees though, except maybe the queen.

Honeybees are a longer term project, there were enormous honeycombs in the roof when we arrived here. They had to move on when we re-roofed.

plants don't grow without leaves so you're OK there. But dead trees rot down eventually and take your fence as well.
