That plant is a willowherb but it's not Rosebay Willowherb

it might be Broad-leaved Willowherb, Epilobium montanum

Doesn't do so well with human interference.

Helleborus foetidus is a native plant, it can survive without our ministrations.

I don't grow spuds Pete. Do you think the seeds would be ripe before you needed to dig up the plant for harvest?

growing lily from seed?

The fancy ones won't come true from seed but anything that makes a viable seed can be propagated. I should think 3 years+ for a flower.

I should think all spuds are cultivars and would not seed true

It would take more than one season of growth to get more spuds and they're not hardy so you'd have to protect the young plants through the winter. You couldn't sow seed in spring and get spuds in late summer.

Have you looked inside those little green tomatoes to see if they contain seed? If so, they would need to ripen on the plant which would interfere with the harvesting of the spuds.

Doesn't sound like a goer to me

give us a sight of the stem

What is this plant/weed?

No, it won't survive, they're biennial, they die after flowering. But if you let it seed you'll have plants everywhere next year

Any optimists out there?

I'm an optimist. 

My new bit of hedge is watered daily.

I can plant stuff because it's not concrete out there.

New grass seed doing well

Aroids looking good, 

I haven't watered the plants in waiting for weeks.

Anyone know what these are?

I'd need to see the tree shape and some leaves and branches. Plant growing rather than the flower in hand.

Best guess from that, Deutzia 'Montrose'
