Spring bulbs growing now

Be glad your snowdrops have survived being dried out and planted in September. They often don't. That's why they're sold 'in the green' in spring

Also check they are snowdrops. Grape hyacinths are the most likely to be making leaves now

Willow Hedge (I think)

Most clems can take a good hack.

I would get rid od the elder unless you want a wild look, I'd get rid of the willow unless you want a lot of work that has no end.

Those willow shapes and fences that Alan mentions look nice for a while but they need constant controlling. They don't sucker so the ones coming up in the blackcurrants were probably sticks from pruning. If you leave them on the ground they root

The other tree is elder.

My way forward would be to cut everything back as Welsh onion suggests for the willow. 

Collecting nicotiana seeds

Posted: 07/10/2014 at 20:37

I think you're right Philippa, also with foxgloves they going to be sown immediately (at least mine are). Nicotiana aren't hardy so they've got to be really ripe and dry to store till spring

End of the season thoughts

Scents are amazing right now, Eleagnus ebbingei, the pink viburnums, choisya, Nicotiana affinis.  It's not nearly finished out there

Weeds or flowers?

Watch that wood avens the seeds stick to everything and they're soon everywhere.

3 is a pea or vetch

1 looks familiar, can't put a flower on it. I don't think it's a weed though
