Newbie plea for help!

I assume it's quite shady in there?

Alliaria petiolata, Jack by the hedge is a good biennial, food plant for the orange tip butterfly larvae, foxgloves would be good but are poisonous. Primroses, snowdrops, pulmonaria. There is a native pulmonaria but the usual ones found in GCs are fine.

We discussed in the past, maybe not on this thread, the cycles of these and other wild creatures. I'd never seen them before we moved here 22 years ago. Then for a few years there were lots. Now very few again.

I like my broad beans very young, cooked in the pods. Very nice. Better than mange tout

Hi Wendy, is this a multi-stemmed tree and you want to remove some or do you want to reduce the height? 

I should think the dormant season would be best but I've never pruned one. I left one behind in my last garden so someone has probably pruned it by now

ID's if possible please =+)

I think Lyn is right about them all being the same, the first 2 definitely. Not mint though.

perenial seeds

I wouldn't, unless you have a free supply of lots of seeds.

There's a real danger of them being swamped by weeds. Some perennials, sown now, will germinate in spring. Weeds will germinate every day between now and spring.

and perennials are much slower than annuals, a few flower the first year from seed but most don't. that leaves more time to be swamped

If you have got plenty of seeds then throw them at the slope, some will come through
