Nerine bowdenii is pink (if it's not white)

Colchicums as well

don't bother with Crocus sativus, it rarely plays the game

Help identifying plant or weed.

I have heard 

Allium ursinum

Allium triquetum 

Alliaria petiolata

all referred to as wild garlic.

This is why I use the above names. I like to know which plant I'm discussing.

re weeds. I'd rather have  Alliaria petiolata than  Lysimachia ciliata



Alyssum Saxatile Compactum

Too much heat and enclosure I'd say. Bob may be right about autumn sowing, I haven't grown this one, but fresh is the best way to sow any seed and they'll be fresher in autumn. Sooner if you can get hold of them, they'll be plants by winter, plant out in spring.

Plant ID, what is it, please?

They're not wildly invasive or difficult to remove. Handy for dry shade where not much else thrives. It wouldn't be at the top of my list for a very small garden.

Can you move it out of the way or is there no safe place?
