I've just seen a photo elsewhere Polly, all the shrubs cut like bits of hedge, it looked awful. Plants need to be allowed to grow and flourish Think shape and style, not just flowers.
you get a better shaped shrub in the long term if you cut some old stems right back to base and leave the rest as they are. Shrubs that have been cut back to a height loose all their natural shape and style and just look hacked.
without all those mixed genes you won't get the big, bright flowers, wild species aren't like that. Same with salvias. We have to dig deep into our pockets, buy one plant and take cuttings or divisions.

That's because none of the named varieties come true from seed. You might get some nice clematis (if you get fertile seed) but they won't be the named variety.
It's not one I recognise but likely to be a fungus growing from the wood chips
I've certainly got that one.
That's probably a definite then pansyface
Maybe Welsh Poppy, Meconopsis cambrica
Says grow your own so guess it's A. archangelica. Not sure if that one's biennial or perennial. It looks a bit small but might take off and flower if you plant it out.
Many of the angelicas are biennial or at least monocarpic. How big is it?
