I can't see any lily beetles on mine. Dove was here this morning and she's good at finding them if they're there

Whats are these yellow beauties?

That looks like Mahonia aquifolia. That will seed itself without assistance

Please help me identify this plant

Bay tree - roots

Posted: 21/04/2015 at 08:33

Ladysmum, a bay can be cut back to keep it under control, if it's not too big at the top the roots won't be too extensive. I've cut mine to a sort of dome, about 9 foot tall. It looked a bit bald on top when viewed from upstairs for the first year but it's all lovely and green now. Mine is probably about 10 foot from the house. I'm hoping the suckers will eventually form a wider but not taller dome. It has always suckered in a big way, long before I cut it. It's a sucker from one in my previous garden.

Pink fizz climbing fuschia

I think that's too much to expect of a fuchsia. It's hardy if you live in the right place. Not evergreen as Nd says, will probably die back in winter if it doesn't die completely and you'll be waiting till mid-summer for cover of any sort. And they don't really climb, they're taller than the traditional bushy fuchsia. Climbers have some method of hanging on, tendrils, twining or thorns.

In your posted picture I can see cornflowers, eschscholzias, field poppies and calendula  The yellow further back is probably corn marigold. 

Borage is good as well and the phacelia that bekkie mentioned. They're all annuals and you'll get flowers this year.

Cornflowers come in white if you want more white,
